About

My name is Vítor Hugo Pinto and I am an INESC TEC junior investigator and teaching assistant at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Porto. In the past, I have held an Innovation for Services award at FEUP.

I have received my Masters Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Porto in 2015, and I am currently enroled in my Ph.D. in Robotic Systems at the University of Porto.

My main research interests are the Autonomous Robotic Systems and Mobile Robotics.

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.
