• A hybrid approach to underwater docking of AUVs with cross-current 

      Henriksen, Vegard F; Brekke, Edmund Førland; Pettersen, Kristin Ytterstad; Sans-Muntadas, Albert (Conference object; Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      This paper proposes a docking maneuver for an underactuated autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) to dock into a funnel shaped docking station. The novelty of the proposed approach is enabling an underactuated AUV that is ...
    • Autonomous Optical Survey Based on Unsupervised Segmentation of Acoustic Backscatter 

      Sture, Øystein; Fossum, Trygve Olav; Ludvigsen, Martin; Syre Wiig, Martin (Journal article, 2018)
      The application of acoustics to study the seabed have for decades provided industry and science with valuable information, and is still excels in terms of spatial coverage and detail. An acoustic response from the seabed ...
    • Distributed motion sensing on ships 

      Heyn, Hans-Martin; Udjus, Guttorm; Skjetne, Roger (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      A current trend is autonomous transport of goods and people in the air, at land, and at sea. For safe and reliable operations, autonomous systems require sensors that replace, or even exceed, the senses of a human operator. ...
    • Transfer Learning in Underwater Operations 

      Skaldebø, Martin Breivik; Sans-Muntadas, Albert; Schjølberg, Ingrid (Journal article, 2019)
      This paper investigates a method for reducing the reality gap that occurs when applying simulated data in training for vision-based operations in a subsea environment. The distinction in knowledge in the simulated and real ...
