An important task of the modern marine robotics is development of design methods for autonomous underwater vehicles (UAV) functioning in an environment non-formalized a priori. Synergetic approach and neural-like networks are used for generation of behavior strategies and performing motions. The authors have performed more than 10 R&D projects and created a control system for a typical AUV.
Development of autonomous robotic system for a surface mini-ship ensuring autonomous and remote control motion, information collection, data exchange with a control unit and control of on-board systems.
The imitation modeling systems are used in research and design of control systems for watercrafts. Their goal is to test the algorithms and software without full-scale tests. Modeling allows us to determine the necessary upgrading of units and system elements and gives us a visual demonstration of the research results. The modeling software creates a possibility to perform imitation modeling of a watercraft with a control system based on the developed mathematical models and control algorithms.
