This paper addresses the problems of automatically planning autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) paths which best exploit complex current data, from computational estuarine model forecasts, while also avoiding obstacles. In particular we examine the possibilities for a novel type of AUV mission deployment in fast flowing tidal river regions which experience bi-directional current flow. These environments are interesting in that, by choosing an appropriate path in space and time, an AUV may both… CONTINUE READING
