Sobre

Sou o Carlos Gonçalves e nasci e cresci em Bragança, Portugal. Depois de ter concluído o ensino secundário mudei-me para a cidade do Porto para estudar Engenharia Eletrotécnica e de Computadores na Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto (FEUP), num curso de mestrado integrado com especialidade em automação e robótica, o qual terminei em 2016. Durante o curso, além deste, também trabalhei na área de suporte técnico a dispositivos eletrónicos e na área da eletromecânica, nomeadamente no desenvolvimento e fabrico de peças mecânicas recorrendo a software de CAD/CAM e à programação e operação de máquinas CNC. Estes trabalhos deram-me uma experiência complementar ao conhecimento académico.

O tema da minha dissertação para obter o grau de mestre esteve relacionado com o projeto e desenvolvimento de um pequeno veículo autónomo submarino. Deste trabalho resultou o robô SHAD. Depois da minha graduação como mestre, passei a ser investigador no INESC TEC e as minhas áreas de investigação continuam a ser automação, eletrónica e sistemas robóticos. A minha atividade está centrada no desenvolvimento de soluções inovadoras para plataformas robóticas aquáticas.

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

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

Publicação
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.
