On adaptive underwater object detection
A new algorithm for the detection of underwater objects in sonar imagery is proposed. One particularly novel component of the algorithm also detects the presence of, and estimates the orientation of, sand ripples. The ...
Efficient dense sonar surveys with an autonomous underwater vehicle
An algorithm for the in situ adaptation of the survey route of an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) equipped with side-looking sonars was recently proposed. This algorithm immediately exploits the through-the-sensor data ...
Multi-view SAS image classification using deep learning
A new approach is proposed for multi-view classification when sonar data is in the form of imagery and each object has been viewed an arbitrary number of times. An image-fusion technique is employed in conjunction with a ...
AUV-enabled adaptive underwater surveying for optimal data collection
A new adaptive strategy for performing data collection with a sonar-equipped autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) is proposed. The approach is general in the sense that it is applicable to a wide range of underwater tasks ...
Adaptive underwater sonar surveys in the presence of strong currents
We consider the task of conducting underwater surveys with a sonar-equipped autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) in environments with strong currents. More specifically, this topic is addressed in the context of mine ...
