Data muling over underwater wireless sensor networks using an autonomous underwater vehicle

Abstract

We present algorithms, systems, and experimental results for underwater data muling. In data muling a mobile agent interacts with static agents to upload, download, or transport data to a different physical location. We consider a system comprising an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) and many static underwater sensor nodes (USN) networked together optically and acoustically. The AUV can locate the static nodes using vision and hover above the static nodes for data upload. We describe the hardware and software architecture of this underwater system, as well as experimental data
