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.

Abstract
This paper describes the PISCES system, an integrated approach for fully autonomous mapping of large areas of the ocean in deep waters. A deep water AUV will use an acoustic navigation system to compute is position with bounded error. The range limitation will be overcome by a moving baseline scheme, with the acoustic sources installed in robotic surface vessels with previously combined trajectories. In order to save power, all systems will have synchronized clocks and implement the One Way Travel Time scheme. The mapping system will be a combination of an off-the-shelf MBES with a new long range bathymetry system, with a source on a moving surface vessel and the receivers on board the AUV. The system is being prepared to participate in round one of the XPRIZE challenge. © 2017 Marine Technology Society.

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.
