Now that Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are exploring more challenging terrain than ever, the need for an obstacle avoidance system has become apparent. Obstacle avoidance systems (OAS) in unmanned systems are far from new. However, adapting existing methodologies to AUVs presents a new set of challenges. Underwater obstacle sensing relies on limited… CONTINUE READING
