    • Active SLAM for autonomous underwater exploration 

      Palomeras, Narcís; Carreras, Marc; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019)
      Article
      Open Access
      Exploration of a complex underwater environment without an a priori map is beyond the state of the art for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). Despite several efforts regarding simultaneous localization and mapping ...
    • AUV/ASC cooperative survey 

      Palomeras, Narcís; Hurtós, Natalia; Carreras, Marc (SARTI, 2016)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      In this paper we describe a solution to perform autonomous surveys taking advantage of a cooperative multivehicle setup. In the proposed configuration, an ASC provides –through an USBL- absolute positioning and communications ...
    • Mobile robotic platforms for the acoustic tracking of deep-sea demersal fishery resources 

      Masmitjà Rusiñol, Ivan; Navarro, Joan; Gomáriz Castro, Spartacus; Aguzzi, Jacopo; Kieft, B; O'Reilly, Thomas C.; Katija, Kakani; Bouvet, Pierre-Jean; Fannjiang, Clara; Vigo Fernandez, Maria; Puig Alenyà, Pere; Alcocer Peñas, Alex; Vallicrosa Massaguer, Guillem; Palomeras, Narcís; Carreras, Marc; Río Fernandez, Joaquín del; Company Claret, Joan Baptista (2020-11-25)
      Article
      Open Access
      Knowing the displacement capacity and mobility patterns of industrially exploited (i.e., fished) marine resources is key to establishing effective conservation management strategies in human-impacted marine ecosystems. ...
    • Seabed monitoring with Girona 500 AUV working as HROV 

      Carreras, Marc; Gori, Andrea; Mallios, Angelos; Palomeras, Narcís; Linares, Cristina; Gili, Josep Maria; Ribas Romagos, David; Hurtós, Natàlia; Magí, Lluís; Ridao, Pere (SARTI, 2016)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      This paper presents the use of Girona 500 AUV as a Hybrid ROV (HROV) to inspect underwater habitats by combining basic teleoperation and automatic way-point following. This duality allows safe movements, when inspecting ...
    • Sparus II, design of a lightweight hovering AUV 

      Carreras, Marc; Candela, Carles; Ribas, David; Mallios, Angelos; Magí, Lluís; Vidal, Eduard; Palomeras, Narcís; Ridao, Pere (SARTI, 2013)
      Conference lecture

    • Testing Sparus II AUV, an open platform for industrial, scientific and academic applications 

      Carreras, Marc; Candela, Carles; Ribas, David; Palomeras, Narcís; Magí, Lluís; Mallios, Angelos; Vidal, Eduard; Vidal, Èric; Ridao, Pere (SARTI, 2015)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper describes the experience of preparing and testing the SPARUS II AUV in different applications. The AUV was designed as a lightweight vehicle combining the classical torpedo-shape features with the hovering ...
