Abstract:

iRobot was tasked to develop a new payload module and to construct two new vehicles in support of ongoing research at Stevens Institute of Technology. These vehicles were to be equipped with DVL Doppler Velocity Logs sensors, enabling more precise navigation while underwater and minimizing the need to surface for frequent GPS fixes. The Ranger payload module was designed to incorporate this and other sensors, while the Transphibian DVL was externally mounted at the rear of the system. These AUVs were delivered in early 2010. This document describes the activities related to this project.
