Working with motion planning experts” In 2013, I started evaluating different alternatives for planning collision-free paths for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). During such review, I decided to use the Open Motion Planning Library (OMPL), a C++ programming library that consists of many of state-of-the-art sampling-base planning algorithms, which is developed at Rice University, in Houston, Texas. For more than one year, I focused on understanding the most relevant methods and integrating them to our vehicles’ control architecture in Girona. As a result, GIRONA500 and, specially, SPARUS-II AUVs were able to conduct missions that required…

We were arround 300 participants exchanging our work in progress. It was a little bit difficult to manage the schedule because there were five different lines of presentations, and many interesting papers to see. Maybe my inexperience in conferences was the reason. The second conference was the IAPR International Conference…
