Long-Range Coastal Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV)

The second semester of the third year of my Mechanical Engineering degree was a group design project. My group of six was tasked with the design of a coastal autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). I was assigned design of the gliding sub-system (a long-range AUV it had to optimise energy use) and was also the business […]


FYP: MATLAB A* Based Path Planner for Autonomous Off-Road Vehicle
