PicoPOD Autopilot known as ‘PicoPilot’ Launches
Picotech Ltd have successfully demonstrated autonomous mulitbeam surveys using PicoPOD. To enable autonomy, Picotech Ltd developed an autopilot named PicoPilot, which runs on PicoPODs onboard computer. PicoPilot is a MOOS-IvP application. The behaviour-based autonomy framework for unmanned vehicles, MOOS-IvP, was developed by MIT and the Oxford Robotics Institute.
PicoPilot is available now with PicoPOD. Future development will add features including depth-adaptive surveying.
