Unmanned Vehicle Onboard Autonomy for Adaptive Ocean Sampling

Balasuriya, A.

Invited talk at Naval Research Lab, Stennis Space Center (December 2017)

Charles River Analytics is developing a range of technologies to improve the onboard intelligence of unmanned vehicles. In this talk, I will present some of our products developed for marine unmanned systems improving their onboard intelligence. These autonomy modules are implemented on commercially available Unmanned Untethered Vehicles (UUVs). Autonomy modules use a behavioral architecture to identify the best action for the UUV for a given mission. Behavior architecture can be configured for single vehicle operation with a pre-planned mission or with adaptive behaviors where the mission changes with the measurements. E.g. thermocline, front tracking or target prosecution. Behaviors can also be configured to collaborate with other sensor nodes sharing information.
