Integration of AUVs and Senses lab underwater communication stack

Integration of Autonomous Underwater Vechicles (AUVs), Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASVs) and Senses lab underwater communication stack (SUNSET) have been successfully tested  in cooperation with INESC/TEC group at the University of Porto.

First experiments on the remote on-line control of the MARES AUV using acoustic links and SUNSET networking functionalities have been performed in Febrary 2012. In July and August 2012 additional experiments have been conducted at the Douro river near Porto to test and validate the use of acoustic communication to control in a remote and on-line way the operations of the Zarco and Gama ASVs.
