An algorithm for the in situ adaptation of the survey route of an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) equipped with side-looking sonars is proposed. The algorithm immediately exploits the through-the-sensor data that is collected during the mission in order to ensure that quality data is collected everywhere in the area of interest. By introducing flexibility into the survey of the AUV, various limitations of pre-planned surveys are overcome. Experimental results demonstrate the benefit of the… CONTINUE READING
