Dynamic underwater glider for environmental field estimation
A coordinated dynamic sensor network of autonomous underwater gliders to estimate three-dimensional time-varying environmental fields is proposed and tested. Integration with a network of surface relay nodes and asynchronous consensus are used to distribute local information and achieve the global field estimate. Field spatial sparsity is considered, and field samples are acquired by compressive sensing devices. Tests on simulated and real data demonstrate the feasibility of the approach with relative error performance within 10%.
