EAVE-West: A Testbed for Plan Execution,
NAVAL OCEAN SYSTEMS CENTER SAN DIEGO CA
Pagination or Media Count:
The Experimental Autonomous Vehicle - West EAVE-West submersible testbed has been configured for demonstrating a distributable software architecture for Autonomous Undersea Vehicle AUV plan execution. Instead of using a machine planner aboard the AUV, plans are represented and then downloaded to the vehicle. This technique obviates the problems associated with planning and, as a result, the real-time response of the AUV can potentially be improved. A review of the architecture is given and the EAVE-West demonstration system is discussed.
