Autonomous navigation and automatic 3D hydrography systems installed on an unmanned surface vehicle will be an innovative solution on a global scale. The HydroDrona software will be extended with functions such as adaptive planning of measurement profiles during hydrographic works, automatic analysis of image data around the unit in near real-time and many others.
It is planned to develop the following software modules that significantly improve the product, technologies used and the possibilities of providing services:
The module for adaptive planning and implementation of measurement profiles, based on the actual width of the measurement belt depending on the depth of the basin and bottom type, in close to real-time
The module for the automatic classification of the bottom type
The module of automatic recognition and identification of bottom objects during the implementation of the measurement mission
Module for the automatic construction of a numerical model of the bottom and sonar mosaic in close to real-time
Module of multisensor shoreline extraction to determine the area of permissible maneuvers of the platform and zero isobath based on sensory fusion of images from radar, lidar and video cameras
So far, no producer in the world has offered such advanced technologies for autonomous navigation and automatic 3D hydrography of unmanned units.
