Announcing Release 3.0.0 of Project Dave Underwater Robotics Simulation

We are pleased to announce Release v3.0.0 of Project Dave , an underwater robotics simulation project for Gazebo.

Dave is a simulation environment to support rapid testing and evaluation of underwater robotic solutions, specifically underwater vehicles (AUVs/UUVs) operating autonomously. The environment is built upon existing ROS and Gazebo capabilities, particularly the UUV Simulator and WHOI’s ds_sim .

Our third release adds authentic multibeam forward-looking sonar and stratified ocean currents. Please see the Changelog for more details about features and enhancements included with this release.

For quick starts we recommend the following options:

We continue to welcome community feedback and opportunities for collaboration.
