Control of Networks of Underwater Vehicles
Control of networks of underwater vehicles is critical to underwater exploration, mapping, search, and surveillance in the multiscale, spatiotemporal dynamics of oceans, lakes, and rivers. Control methodologies have been derived for tasks including feature tracking and adaptive sampling and have been successfully demonstrated in the field despite the severe challenges of underwater operations.
