    More than 70% of our earth is covered by water, yet we have explored less than 5% of the aquatic environment. Aquatic robots, such as autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), and their supporting infrastructure play a major role in the collection of oceanographic data. To make new discoveries and improve our overall understanding of the ocean, scientists must make use of these platforms by implement... View full abstract»

    The paper describes the current evolution of the class of Fo¿laga underwater vehicles, whose actuation mechanism is a hybrid between oceanographic gliders and standard, self-propelled autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). The Fo¿laga vehicles have been designed for coastal oceanography and environmental sampling; the application-oriented design approach has resulted in light-weight, low-cost, l... View full abstract»

    This article describes the design and implementation of a navigation and control system for the autonomous sailing vessel Avalon. This boat, designed for participating in the Microtransat, is engineered to autonomously cross the Atlantic Ocean. We present here a special robust mechanical design and the navigation software that will plan an optimal navigation course and efficiently control the boat... View full abstract»

  • A Service Robot for Subsea Flexible Risers

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):55 - 63
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5066 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This article presents the development of a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for the underwater inspection of subsea flexible riser, proposing effective solutions for the associated robotic manipulation system. Novel, underactuated end-effectors have been conceived and developed to firmly hold the robot on the riser during locomotion or operation, without affecting riser's integrity. By using these ...

    This contribution focuses on the problem, intrinsic to autonomous underwater manipulation, of medium-range target localization for guiding the vehicle toward the target area. Based on the use of the dual-frequency identification sonar (DIDSON) sonar, the goal is to acquire the Earth-referenced Cartesian coordinates of a known target, with the necessary accuracy required for positioning the vehicle...

    E -manufacturing is an advanced manufacturing that takes advantage of the information and Internet technologies to integrate all functional components of a factory. An e-manufacturing hierarchy was presented by the international SEMATECH (ISMT). However, this ISMT e-manufacturing model does not consider the functions of engineering chain (EC) that deals with the time-to-market (T2M) issues. This a... View full abstract»

    This article extends the capabilities of the harmonic potential field (HPF) approach to planning to cover both the kinematic and dynamic aspects of a robot's motion. The suggested approach converts the gradient guidance field from a harmonic potential to a control signal by augmenting it with a novel type of damping forces called nonlinear, anisotropic, damping forces (NADF). The HPF (harmonic pot... View full abstract»

    This article discusses the role of software components as architectural units of large, possibly distributed, software-intensive robotic systems. The focus is on technologies to manage the heterogeneity of hardware, computational, and communication resources and on design techniques to assemble components into systems .A component-based system is a composition of components, and the way components...
