Abstract

Bumblebee Autonomous Surface Vehicle 1.0 (BBASV 1.0) is an extension of the team’s work on autonomous maritime vehicles development, guided by experience gained from the development of the Bumblebee Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (BBAUV), deployed in Robosub, another AUVSI Foundation Competition. This first iteration was developed over a short six-month design and implementation cycle, providing a baseline vehicle to be used for future development work. It features a baseline ASV system with obstacle avoidance, feature tracking, autonomous navigation and acoustic localisation capabilities.
