Unmanned Surface Vehicle Prototype
As part of our long term cooperation with Selex-ES, we have designed and developed a very low-cost USV prototype. Its design is based on a commercial R/C boat, with an added custom electronic board which takes care of the autonomous control. The prototype has a GPS board and antenna to localize itself, and communicates with the base station through a radio frequency modem.
We have 10 of these prototypes at our disposal, which we can use to test different kind of algorithms: from obstacle avoidance algorithms to patrolling and interception algorithms.
