Multi-objective optimization of confidence-based localization in large-scale underwater robotic swarms. (2018)
Presentation / Conference
SABRA, A., FUNG, W.-K. and CHURN, P. 2018. Multi-objective optimization of confidence-based localization in large-scale underwater robotic swarms. Presented at the 14th International distributed autonomous robotic systems symposium 2018 (DARS 2018), 15-17 October 2018, Boulder, USA.

Ultra-Short Base Line (USBL) is the most commonly adopted localization method in industry due to its flexibility. However, the maximum number of underwater targets that can be simultaneously localized by USBL is very limited (up to 10 using the most... Read More
