DOCTORAL THESIS: Online 3D View Planning for Autonomous Underwater Exploration

By Eduard Vidal Garcia Supervised by Dr. Marc Carreras / Dr. Narcís Palomeras   Abstract Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) are currently used in many different applications, such as near-bottom mapping, manipulation or inspection. Most of the time, these tasks are planned in advance using prior information about the environment where the robot will operate. When this prior information does not exist, robotic exploration algorithms can be used so that the robot…
