Title: Autonomous COLREG-compliant navigation: what next?

When: Day 2, Wednesday 7th June 1230

Session: Navigation and Collision Avoidance

Speaker: Dr. Howard Tripp, Autonomous Systems R&D Lead, ASV Global

Synopsis: Over the last two years ASV Global has developed a real-time autonomous COLREG navigation system for high-speed power boats, proved through thousands of hours of simulation and hundreds on the water. The system uses multiple sensor modalities and a hierarchical architecture to iteratively reduce risk and safely plan routes, paths and trajectories. From inception, the system has been designed in a flexible and extensible manner, so now is the ideal time to start to explore research options to transition it to larger ships, tailoring for specific applications or integration with bridge and operator decision-making systems.

Title: Improving remote operator situational awareness in over-the-horizon operations.

When: Day 2, Wednesday 7th June 1730

Session: Test and Development of Autonomous Technology

Speaker: Christopher Bissoc, Unmanned Systems Engineer, ASV Global

Synopsis: Up until now, operation of USVs over the horizon has been restricted by safety factors (the requirement to keep a man in the loop) as well as technical limitations due to the constraints posed by the vehicle size and satellite communication datalink performance. Under the USMOOTH project, ASV Global has developed, built and tested an optimised EO-sensor suite, alongside a domain-specific, ROI-based video compression framework to improve the remote operator’s situational awareness via a low-bandwidth, high-latency communication link. The project has also seen extensive testing in real-life environments to evaluate system performance alongside human factors.
