Autonomous Marine Robotics: Development, Technologies, and Future Trend

Autonomous Marine Robotics: Development, Technologies, and Future Trend



Autonomous field robotics has witnessed a fast advance in recent years thanks to the exciting progresses in artificial intelligence (AI), advanced sensory technologies and robust decision-making systems. To ensure the safety of autonomous robots, reliable motion planning algorithms that can generated optimised trajectories in varying complex environments have become the core. Constraints imposed by unstructured environments, unpredictable disturbances and varying computational resources have made motion planning for field robotics even more challenging. This talk will therefore be focusing on developing motion planning algorithms for various robotic platforms with a special interest in marine robotics.

Dr Yuanchang Liu received the B.Eng. degree in control engineering from the Dalian University of Technology, in 2010, the M.Sc. degree in power systems engineering, and the Ph.D. degree in marine control engineering from University College London, in 2011 and 2016, respectively, where he is currently a Lecturer with the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Before joining the department, he was a Research Fellow in robotic vision and autonomous vehicles of the Surrey Space Centre, University of Surrey. His research focuses on automation and autonomy, with a special interest in the exploration of technologies for sensing and perception, and guidance and control of intelligent and autonomous vehicles. He is currently supervising four Ph.D. students, working on the project of autonomous navigation for unmanned marine vehicles.
