Localizing underwater targets using a cooperative AUV architecture


In this paper, we describe a cooperative architecture in which multiple Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) cooperate to locate underwater targets. Each AUV is endowed with a sensor that estimates its distance with respect to targets, and cooperate with others to explore an area with the help of an autonomous surface vehicle (ASV) that stores the gathered… (More)
