CoCoRo General Assembly

Yesterday the CoCoRo project held its first general assembly meeting, marking 6 months since the start of the project. The meeting was a success, with all partners presenting interesting aspects of work conducted in the early stages of the project.

James Hilder and myself, representing the Uni of York, presented initial ideas concerning the operating system design, and early work on porting algorithms into the CoCoRo simulation. AUVs flocking based on Reynold’s Boids algorithm is particularly interesting to watch (at least I think so!)… here’s a video. The algorithm represents one of several possible solutions that allow swarms of AUVs to explore their environment as a group without losing contact with one another.
