A new electronic control system for unmanned underwater vehicles
Rights accessOpen Access
In this paper a new electronic control system for unmanned underwater vehicles is presented. This control system is characterized by a distribution in control over two network of type CANBus and Ethernet. This new electronic control system integrates functionalities of AUVs, as the automatic execution of preprogrammed trajectories. The control system also integrates an acoustic positioning system based on USBL. The information of relative positioning is sent through specific software tools towards NEPTUS Software for the command and control of the unmanned vehicle, in this way it is possible to observe the positioning of the vehicle under water.
