  • This paper shows a design-to-simulation approach for tackling the autonomous underwater vehicle navigation problem. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) is a primary research topic in robotics. Efficiently solving the problem of robotic navigation allows for robotic platforms to truly operate autonomously without the need for human in the loop interaction. This problem becomes even more important in underwater environments where traditional navigational aids such as GPS are denied due… CONTINUE READING
