Distributed Communication in Swarms of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles

  title={Distributed Communication in Swarms of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles},
  author={Felix Schill},
Effective communication mechanisms are a key requirement for schools of submersible robots and their meaningful deployment. Large schools of identical submersibles require a fully distributed communication system which scales well and optimises for ”many-tomany” communication (omnicast, also known as gossiping). As an additional constraint, communication channels under water are typically very low bandwidth and short range. This thesis discusses possible electric and electro-magnetic wireless… CONTINUE READING
