Autonomous Surface Vessel based on a Low Cost Catamaran Design

Dzmitry Basalai

Abstract

Nowadays, Robotics is increasing its importance for the marine environment in our society. It allows to perform surveillance and data sampling tasks reducing the current cost of these tasks. This paper presents the design of a prototype of an Autonomous Surface Vessel (ASV) based on catamaran shape. It uses the screw theory for the propulsion system, which provides high manoeuvrability to the vessel. Furthermore, the parts of the ASV are designed to be printed by a RepRap 3D printer. This gives flexibility to check the performance of the vessel. Also the software control scheme of the vessel is presented.
