Description of this Book

This edited volume includes thoroughly collected on sensing and control for autonomous vehicles. Guidance, navigation and motion control systems for autonomous vehicles are increasingly important in land-based, marine and aerial operations. Autonomous underwater vehicles may be used for pipeline inspection, light intervention work, underwater survey and collection of oceanographic/biological data. Autonomous unmanned aerial systems can be used in a large number of applications such as inspection, monitoring, data collection, surveillance, etc. At present, vehicles operate with limited autonomy and a minimum of intelligence. There is a growing interest for cooperative and coordinated multi-vehicle systems, real-time re-planning, robust autonomous navigation systems and robust autonomous control of vehicles. Unmanned vehicles with high levels of autonomy may be used for safe and efficient collection of environmental data, for assimilation of climate and environmental models and to complement global satellite systems. The target audience primarily comprises research experts in the field of control theory, but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review This is a well-produced, comprehensive compilation of research articles on control theory and sensors for autonomous vehicle systems. Much of the content focuses on theory and/or literature survey, with some examples of recent experimental results. ... there are some novel ideas in Sensing and Control for Autonomous Vehicles that will capture the imagination of any underwater technology enthusiast. (Ron Lewis, Underwater Technology, Vol. 35 (2), 2018)
