Efficiency boost for robot submarines

Phys.org  March 8, 2019 Control algorithms for AUVs are not necessarily optimized for distance nor energy consumption. Researchers in China have designed an improved energy-aware and self-adaptive deployment method for a group of AUVs taking on collaborative tasks. Taking into account the movement priority of AUVs and the initial deployment scheme a self-adaptive deployment strategy is presented for redeploying the AUVs when the available energy of some AUVs has fallen below a certain threshold. Simulation results showed that the method decreases energy consumption by about 30%. than its traditional counterpart and it can redeploy AUVs adaptively and rapidly…read more. TECHNICAL […]
