Control, System and Software Architecture for Autonomous Underwater Robots

Underwater robots are the next frontier in robotics, and the challenge is to develop methods for their safe and reliable autonomy.
The submarine robot autonomy requires a comprehensive hybrid deliberative architecture, a robotic brain. Safety and reliability must be co-designed simultaneously with cognition, not separately, as an afterthought.
REMARO’s training program follow the previous principles to provide interdisciplinary education to the next generation of roboticists in advanced control, computer vision and machine learning, knowledge, reasoning, and planning, model-driven-engineering, testing, bug finding, verification and model-checking.

The REMARO Summer School Delft 2022 will cover the following topics:

  • Advanced Control and Perception, including:
    • Differences between the behavior of linear and nonlinear systems, Equilibrium behaviour (Static, dynamic, closed orbit (periodic), limit cycle), Lyapunov’s indirect method
    • Sensor Modalities for Navigation, Underwater Sensing Modalities & Perception, State Estimation and Inertial Navigation, Examples of Localisation underwater (Acoustic, Vision)
  • Robot Software Architecting: from Systems Engineering to Self-Adaptation, including:
    • Model-Based Systems Engineering and robot software, Functional Architecture, Architecting the control software of a real robot.
    • Self-Adaptive Systems, How to architect your ROS-based robot software, Self-aware autonomous robots
