Fumin Zhang - Maritime Robotic Sensing Networks
From Katie Gentilello
The Ocean is playing an ever more important role for the future of mankind. Larger variety of marine robots have been developed and commercialized during the last two decades. These robots may serve as networked mobile sensing platforms that are able to collect data in the maritime environment in unprecedented ways, which post higher goals for autonomy never achieved before. This talk gives an overview of autonomous underwater vehicles and their applications for data collection in a complex ocean environment.
