Aquatic Robotics


Work description

The work plan consists of the implementation, validation and performance evaluation of the control layer for automatic docking. The activities carried out by the candidate will be the following: - Assist in the implementation of the control layer (control software); - Carry out validation and characterization through laboratory tests; - Implement fallback strategies in potential risk situations; - Carry out field tests and adjustment of parameters; - Evaluate performance (accuracy) based on field tests; - Port the control layer from smaller scale autonomous surface vehicles to the full scale manned surface vessel. The gtant holder will participate in project meetings with members of the internal team and project partners. Documentation, such as of scientific reports and publications addressing the aforementioned topics, is required throughout the duration of the proposed work plan.
