The video shows the overview of plume front tracking experiments conducted on Makai Research Pier, Oahu, HI. This video only shows an overview of the experiments conducted. Details will be covered in other videos.
This video shows an overview of different data visualization utilities build for post processing of data collected in the experiments. The plume is surveyed with two robots running a potential field based leader follower routine. The window on the left bottom shows the LCM log player, playing the LCM log files recorded during the experiments. The window on the bottom right side, shows the environmental data collected with the weather station and the color bar indicates the concentration level at the measurement location.
This video shows the testing of a leader follower algorithm. The test was conducted on 19th August, 2015 from 1613 hrs to 1621 hrs. USV “Beta” was configured as the leader robot and USV “Alpha” was configured as the follower robot. The video has been accelerated to 3 times the regular speed.”
This video shows a plume survey mission conducted with a single Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) “Beta”. Four fluorometers sensors were installed on the USV to detect Rhodamine. The survey mission was conducted on 19th of August 2015 from 1458 hrs to 1523 hrs. The video has been modified to run at 5x the original speed.
