In this paper we present an multi-robotic system for underwater exploration, specifically for coastal seas. The novelty of this system is its enhanced performance in underwater localization using underwater acoustic ranging and data transfer between the floats. This process is not dependent on any fixed infrastructure, which is usually a requirement for(More)
