“The Intelligent Search and Mapping of Shipwrecks in the Coastal Waters of Malta"
This interdisciplinary project focuses on developing novel AUV planning, control, and visualization techniques that can be applied to a general class of autonomous robot exploration tasks.These techniques are being applied in actual AUV shipwreck search and mapping in coastal areas of Malta and Sicily. We present our work on probabilistic algorithms for AUV motion planning that maximize information gain when mapping a wreck and visualization techniques that construct 3D models of wrecks and the ocean environment. This talk presents the background and current state of this ongoing joint research project between Cal Poly, Harvey Mudd College and the University of Malta.
