The aim of this project is to develop communication and network capacity for the Maritime Underwater Robots by pushing the technology of UW-communication in a variety of applications of underwater robotics towards small, agile and robust systems.
Possible capacities to be considered include, but are not limited to mission intervention (Error handling), node to R-AUV communication, long-range communication > 10km (chain of nodes), hardware Turbo code TCP/IP and Node-to-Node protocols and swarm communication.
The project focus is on integration of novel methods and algorithms and miniaturized hardware in light hardware with emphasis on demonstrating system performance in increasingly complex authentic environments.
