Sensor Fusion and Collision Avoidance for Autonomous Surface Vehicles


Description:

Our vision is for the Norwegian maritime industry and researchers in collaboration with international partners to attain world-leading competence and knowledge in the design and verification of methods and systems for sensor fusion and collision avoidance for autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs). In particular, the research partners will develop and evaluate such methods and systems in compliance with the maritime anti-collision regulations (COLREGS), utilizing fusion of data from radar, AIS, IR, LIDAR, camera, IMU, GPS, etc. In addition to enabling commercial ASVs, the results can be used to enhance decision support systems for humans on manned vessels. The project will also provide a solid foundation for independent third-party verification of autonomous marine technology. The project is supported with funding and infrastructure by DNV GL, KONGSBERG and Maritime Robotics.
