Abstract
Abstract This article presents a novel 2.5D map representation, termed polar map, that has a memory consumption of O(ML), where M and L depend on the map's angular and depth resolution, respectively. The map has a computational effort of O(1) in the update and evaluation process, where updates are performed through the use of Kalman filters. The representation can only be applied to structures in an environment that can be represented uniquely in a cylindrical coordinate system, such as fish cages, and square and cylindrical tanks. The work presents two case studies that compare the proposed polar map with the octomap approach to mapping. The first case shows the simulated example of a fish cage. The second, an experiment in a square tank, where an unmanned underwater vehicle performs simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) using both the polar map and octomap representation. The results show that the polar map performs better, both in terms of memory consumption and computation effort, in both mapping and SLAM in the selected case studies.

Abstract Bathymetric simultaneous localization and mapping (BSLAM) technique could provide long-term underwater navigation results for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and produce a self-consistent bathymetric map simultaneously. However, the inter-frame motion inside BSLAM is still difficult to estimate, and BSLAM might fail catastrophically with invalid loop closures caused by the measurement errors of vehicle states and bathymetric data. To deal with these problems, an AUV robust BSLAM a...

In real-world robotics, motion planning remains to be an open challenge. Not only robotic systems are required to move through unexplored environments, but also their manoeuvrability is constrained by their dynamics and often suffer from uncertainty. One approach to overcome this problem is to incrementally map the surroundings while, simultaneously, planning a safe and feasible path to a desired goal. This is especially critical in underwater environments, where autonomous vehicles must deal wi...

The introduction of autonomy in subsea operations may affect operational risk related to Inspection, Maintenance, and Repair (IMR). This article proposes a Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) to model the risk affecting autonomous subsea IMR operations. The proposed BBN risk model can be used to calculate the probability of aborting an autonomous subsea IMR operation. The nodes of the BBN are structured using three main categories, namely technical, organizational, and operational. The BBN is tested f...

Occupancy Grid maps provide a probabilistic representation of space which is important for a variety of robotic applications like path planning and autonomous manipulation. In this paper, a SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) framework capable of obtaining this representation online is presented. The H-SLAM (Hilbert Maps SLAM) is based on Hilbert Map representation and uses a Particle Filter to represent the robot state. Hilbert Maps offer a continuous probabilistic representation with ...

Abstract This article presents an overview of reported injuries in the Norwegian aquaculture industry focusing on the production of Atlantic salmon and trout, which dominates the fish farming industry in Norway. Two different data sets form the basis for the analysis: (i) occupational injuries reported to the Norwegian Labor and Welfare Administration, and (ii) serious occupational injuries reported to the Norwegian Labor Inspection Authority. The data sets on occupational injuries and serious i...

Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) consists in the concurrent construction of a model of the environment (the map ), and the estimation of the state of the robot moving within it. The SLAM community has made astonishing progress over the last 30 years, enabling large-scale real-world applications and witnessing a steady transition of this technology to industry. We survey the current state of SLAM and consider future directions. We start by presenting what is now the de-facto standard ...

The vast amount of data robots can capture today motivates the development of fast and scalable statistical tools to model the space the robot operates in. We devise a new technique for environment representation through continuous occupancy mapping that improves on the popular occupancy grip maps in two fundamental aspects: 1 it does not assume an a priori discrimination of the world into grid cells and therefore can provide maps at an arbitrary resolution; 2 it captures spatial relationships b...

Abstract An ultra-short baseline (USBL) system and a Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) system, both commonly applied for navigation and guidance of underwater vehicles, were tested with respect to their capabilities to support aquaculture net pen inspection by remote-operated-vehicles (ROVs). The data from these systems were investigated with respect to this new application and its operational demands. A series of full scale experiments indicate that the DVL system is able to detect sea pen nets equall...

The escape of fish from fish farms is a problem for the Norwegian aquaculture industry. Following a decrease in structural equipment failures, human errors and human factors have been highlighted as one of the main challenges when it comes to preventing fish escape. This article identifies causes of previous accidents leading to fish escape, as well as risks of escape, focusing in particular on the organisation of work as well as the role of the workers at fish farms. It is apparent that operati...
