Speech Title:Sonar Detection and Formation Control with Autonomous Underwater Vehicles
Abstract: Underwater object detection with Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) has an important role. Sonar image segmentation is the key step in underwater object detection automatically. Small underwater target detection from sonar images remains a challenging task. Due to the scarcity of sonar samples and the uneven seabed background, it is very difficult to distinguish underwater object's contour accurately. We migrate samples with object-shadow pair features, and proposed novel level-set-based sonar image segmentation algorithms. Moreover, to be our knowledge, single AUV is inefficient for large-scale underwater detection. Therefor, we further investigate formation control problem of leade-follower structured AUVs under the condition of unreliable underwater acoustic channel.
