Joint positioning and navigation aiding system for underwater robots

Abstract

This paper proposes a new joint positioning and navigation aiding system for underwater robots. In the scenario adopted, a submersed target carries a pinger that emits acoustic signals periodically, as determined by a low precision clock. The target is tracked from the surface by a set of buoys equipped with acoustic hydrophones/projectors, GPS receivers… (More)
