Access/Technology provider: University of Zagreb (UNIZG), aPad ASVs
Dates: 1st – 4th October 2019
GOAL: The main objective of this project is to test the coordinated mission control of heterogeneous ASVs in a convenient and remote way by adopting cloud-based technology.
Traditional shore base monitoring system is not appropriate for workers to realize remote control of autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs) in long-distance navigation. A new method which depends on cloud server instead of traditional shore base monitoring system can resolve this problem. The key objectives are:
- Set up cloud based remote mission controller for heterogeneous ASV infrastructures, this is the key process to realize data transmission between ASVs and ASVs through cloud server.
- Integrate a fleet of multiple ASVs in EuMarineRobots infrastructure network with cloud-based interface.
- For testing the practical performance of cloud-based ASVs, field experiments on cloud-based multiple ASVs in the sea is necessary for testing the performance of real-time monitoring and data collection.
