Abstract: The MIT Sea Grant AUV Lab, in association with Bluefin Robotics Corporation, has undertaken the task of designing a new autonomous underwater vehicle, a holonomic hover-capable robot capable of performing missions where an inspection capability similar to that of a remotely operated vehicle is the primary goal. One of the primary issues in this mode of operating AUVs is how the robot perceives its environment and thus navigates. The predominant methods for navigating in close proximity to large iron structures, which precludes accurate compass measurements, require the AUV to receive position information updates from an outside source, typically an acoustic LBL or USBL system. The new paradigm we present in this paper divorces the navigation routine from any absolute reference frame; motions are referenced directly to the hull. We argue that this technique offers some substantial benefits over the conventional approaches, and will present the current status of our project.
