Abstract
The autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) carry out inspection missions and intervention on known and unknown environments, where it is important to ensure their safety. The ability for obstacle detection and their avoidance during navigation is a requirement for safety. In this article is presented an obstacle detection system for the experimental vehicle Guanay II using mechanical scanning sonar, the Tritech Micron MK. Given that the Guanay II operates autonomously, a new software has been desi...
