SWARMs Conference on Novel Solutions for Underwater Vehicles in Autonomous Sea Operations


We invite submissions in the area of solutions for underwater vehicles in autonomous sea operations, including (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Development methodologies and novel designs for autonomous maritime missions including HMI designs, data formatting and transfer challenges.
  • Distributed platform and architectures for integrating and coordinating underwater robotics vehicles: data modelling and context awareness, Industrial IoT middleware solutions.
  • New solutions for sensors and processing algorithms for underwater environments: data processing, 3D mapping, landmark extraction, map matching, relocation.
  • New solutions for underwater communication systems: advanced networking, integrated over and underwater communications, high speed underwater communication, integration of heterogeneous underwater communication systems.
  • Design and development of embedded architecture and mission management solutions: mission management (planning, re-planning, monitoring, etc.), software architecture and its evaluation over simulated, experimental or real scenarios.
  • Autonomous navigation and semi-autonomous manipulation: simulation tool for underwater vehicles, motion planning, hybrid acoustic and radio frequency communication and control for homing applications.
