Abstract:

The long-term goal of this research is to enable a cooperating group of underwater gliders to perform efficiently and robustly as an autonomous, adaptive sampling network in a three-dimensional, dynamic ocean environment. This will involve developing the mathematical infrastructure and design tools for effecting feedback-controlled, schooling-like network behavior in an unsteady flow field while exploiting the natural dynamics of the ocean.
