In this paper, we introduce the Lehigh Ocean Research Craft Autonomous (LORCA) - a high performance USV with applications to surveillance and monitoring tasks. [...] Key Method We first review the LORCA design and technical specifications. We then discuss our initial work in trajectory following where an EKF-based approach is employed for localization and a sample based planner for control. Using only the sensing and computational resources available on a 3DR Pixhawk, we demonstrate effective trajectory…Expand
