Presentation of the project at ICRA 2015

The project and its preliminary results were presented at the Persistent Autonomy for Aquatic Robotics: The Role of Control and Learning in Single and Multi-Robot Systems (PAAR) workshop during International Conference on Robotics and Automaton (ICRA) on May 30, 2015, in Seattle, USA.

The main focus of a spotlight talk and a poster displayed at the workshop was on investigation of the underwater vehicle drift due to actions of ocean currents. A way to feed-forward these effects into the control algorithms based on a two-stage approach was shown and demonstrated through simulation resultss for a scenario of vehicle stabilization around a point of interest on the fish net.
