Maritime Projects


Thank you to Musa for providing the first post to the interest group.

Following her lead, I’d encourage anyone to announce projects that might be of interest to this community.

For example, here are some of the projects we are following:

  • Ocean Systems Laboratory provides some of their packages via github, including auv_msgs and a few maritime specific drivers.
  • At NPS we are working towards a USV/ASV simulator to support the RobotX maritime competition. We recently ran a tutorial on using the tools.
  • The UWSim underwater simulator.

If you are working on or using open-source projects that would benefit this group, please let everyone know.



There is also the freefloating_gazebo project that allows combining Gazebo’s physics engine with the rendering of UWSim developed by O. Kermorgant.
