Distinction – publication about the HydroDron
We are pleased to announce the award granted to the publication „Accuracy of Trajectory Tracking Basen on Nonlinear Guidance Logic for Hydrographic Unmanned Surface Vessels”.
Abstract: A new trend in recent years for hydrographic measurement in water bodies is the use of unmanned surface vehicles (USVs). In the process of navigation by USVs, it is particularly important to control position precisely on the measuring profile. Precise navigation with respect to
the measuring profile avoids registration of redundant data and thus saves time and survey costs. This article addresses the issue of precise navigation of the hydrographic unit on the measuring profile with the use of a nonlinear adaptive autopilot. The results of experiments concerning hydrographic measurements performed in real conditions using an USV are discussed.
