Development and testing of an integrated autonomous measurement system for maritime surveying tasks

The aim of the project is the integration of a collision avoidance to improve the autonomy and the handling of the Sonobot. In addition, a mathematical model of the dynamic properties of the Sonobot is created and its parameters are identified. This model will then be used for simulations to investigate and improve control algorithms and their parameters. The application areas of the Sonobot are the surveying of waters by means of a side-scan sonar, sampling of water with a probe and the use as a communication gateway using a USBL repeater. In the area of surveying, the Sononbot closes the gap between the hand measurement and surveying vessels. The Sonobot has a special advantage when used in shallow water areas.
