Special Session

Automated signal & information processing for autonomous underwater sensing systems

 

This special session concerns the development of automated algorithms that ultimately enable autonomous underwater systems. The automation of interest includes signal processing of sensor data, refining such data into useful information, understanding environment / context and its relationship to system performance, and methods for optimizing the employment of mobile heterogeneous sensing assets. Many constraints are imposed by the underwater domain including limited power, communication and navigation; real-time / on-vehicle processing; and infrequent exposure to human operators. The ultimate goal of this automation is to endow autonomous underwater vehicles with robust perception. This robustness stems from both advances in processing as well as the ability to adapt the processing and/or the sensing system behavior to challenging environmental or situational conditions.
