By manipulation of electric fields, it is possible to detect the presence of foreign objects underwater. The presented work builds upon a previous result, in which was developed a neural network-based methodology allowing to address this detection problem for spherical objects. Hereafter, we show that the approach generalizes to the case of continuous walls. The technique relies on a neural model of the forward map (from scene configuration to electric measures). Exploiting this model, together… CONTINUE READING
