Project Details


This project investigated how to accurately locate autonomous marine vessels in GPS restricted or denied areas. A model was built that used vessel movement data, radar and camera imagery to accurately track its location in a simulator to within 30 metres, depending on the simulated conditions.

Key findings

Radar imagery was more effective than camera landmark based imagery at locating the vessel.
