Juan David Hernández from the University of Girona attended the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2016) in Daejeon (Korea) on October 9-14, 2016. The presented work was entitled “Planning Feasible and Safe Paths Online for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles in Unknown Environments”. It proposed an AUV framework for mapping unexplored environments while planning feasible paths. The presentation included simulation and in-water trials, which were conducted over natural and artificial marine environments. The proposed framework not only calculates paths that are more likely to be followed by an AUV, but also takes into consideration the risk associated with such paths. This allows the vehicle to safely navigate through the unexplored environment while moving close to nearby obstacles. The conference in which this work was presented is one of the most important events for the robotics community in the world.
