About

My name is Carlos Gonçalves and I was born and raised in Bragança, Portugal. After finished the secondary education, I went to study Electrical and Computers Engineering in Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP), where I received my integrated master degree, in 2016, with major in automation and specialization in robotics. Besides attending this program, I also worked in the field of electronics technical support and in the electromechanical field, namely the development and production of mechanical parts by using CAD/CAM software and programming and operation of CNC machines. These works give me a further experience.

My MSc Dissertation was related to design and development of a small autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) which resulted in the robot SHAD. After my graduation, I became INESC TEC researcher and my interests remain automation, electronics and robotics systems. My activity is focused on developing innovative solutions for aquatic robotic platforms.

Design and development of SHAD - A Small Hovering AUV with Differential actuation

Authors
Goncalves, CS; Ferreira, BM; Matos, AC;

Publication
OCEANS 2016 MTS/IEEE Monterey, OCE 2016

Abstract
This paper presents the design and development of a new Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). SHAD, which stands for Small Hovering AUV with Differential actuation, is a torpedo shaped vehicle that was conceptually designed to navigate in challenging volumes. It brings to the scene of submarine robotics a different model and new design of AUV. The small size, the light weight and the high maneuverability of this AUV were among the most important features that can make the SHAD an option to applications where other models have difficulties. This paper details the design and the development of SHAD and presents experimental results from sensors and actuators testing as well as vehicle navigation. © 2016 IEEE.
