PVDF sensors are used to measure the dynamic pressure surrounding a biomimetic autonomous underwater vehicle (BAUV). To track the motion of a periodically oscillating source by following the pressure generated by the source motion, the BAUV estimates pressure derived by its own, and subtract those information to find the signals of the source motion.(More)
The purpose of this study is to develop a navigation and control system for a biomimetic-autonomous underwater vehicle (BAUV) to track a target. A Bayesian method, using an extended Kalman filter, combining localization and environmental mapping by a BAUV is implemented. This strategy selects the best sensor measurement by choosing one of several(More)
This talk addresses two different designs of underwater robots: a bay monitoring flatfish type autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), and a fleet of robotic fish that swims in an exhibition tank. Both of them are for the live demonstration of underwater robotics technology in a museum of marine science and technology in Keelung, Taiwan. Hydrodynamic(More)
