Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) encompass a network of sensors and actuators that are monitored, controlled and integrated by a computing and communication core. As autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) become more intelligent and connected, new use cases in ocean production, security and environmental monitoring become feasible. Swarms of small, affordable and hydrobatic AUVs can be beneficial in substance cloud tracking and algae farming, and a CPS linking the AUVs with multi-fidelity… 

A Cyber-Physical System for Hydrobatic AUVs: System Integration and Field Demonstration

The full system including the mission planning interface, behavior tree, controllers, dead-reckoning and object detection algorithm is validated and the submerged target is successfully detected both in simulation and reality, and simulation tools show tight integration with target hardware.

A System for Autonomous Seaweed Farm Inspection with an Underwater Robot

This paper outlines challenges and opportunities in operating underwater robots (so-called AUVs) on a seaweed farm. The need is driven by an emerging aquaculture industry on the Swedish west coast



Hydrobatics: A Review of Trends, Challenges and Opportunities for Efficient and Agile Underactuated AUVs

This paper is to present a multidisciplinary literature review to provide a path forward for further research inHydrobatics, a relatively new area of research with very limited published research work, and a simulation and verification framework is suggested.

Improving the Modularity of AUV Control Systems using Behaviour Trees

How behaviour trees (BTs) can be used to design modular, versatile, and robust control architectures for mission-critical systems for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) is shown.

Cyber-physical systems: The next computing revolution

The design, construction and verification of cyber-physical systems pose a multitude of technical challenges that must be addressed by a cross-disciplinary community of researchers and educators.

Field Report: Exploring Fronts with Multiple Robots

The goal of this cruise was to demonstrate a novel approach to observe the ocean with multiple underwater, surface, and aerial vehicles, as well as with the R/V Falkor also used as the base and control center for all assets.

Inexpensive, small AUVs for studying ice-covered polar environments

This research presents a new generation of AUVs that are rapidly becoming the platform of choice for mapping the underside of sea ice, as well as for geological and biological oceanographic measurements in the Arctic and Antarctic.

Industrie 4.0: Hit or Hype? [Industry Forum]

In Germany, the term Industrie 4.0 is currently prevalent in almost every industry-related fair, conference, or call for public-funded projects. First used at the Hanover Fair in 2011, the term,

Agile design of low-cost autonomous underwater vehicles

The capital cost of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) is still prohibitive for wide spread mass adoption. To address this, the ecoSUB programme is developing small low-cost reusable AUVs designed
