WHOI Engineers Work to Adapt Swarming Capabilities for Low-Cost UUVs

In aerial and terrestrial applications, robotics swarms allow mission adaptability, robustness, and scalability. In aerial and terrestrial applications, access to GPS data and high-speed communications allows robotic swarms to operate functionally; however, expanding swarming capabilities below the ocean surface remains a significant challenge. Implementing swarming techniques for underwater missions requires structured, accurate clocks and communications…
