UNDERSEA: An Exemplar for Engineering Self-Adaptive Unmanned Underwater Vehicles
by Simos Gerasimou, Radu Calinescu, Stepan Shevtsov, and Danny Weyns
Recent advances in embedded systems and underwater communications raised the autonomy levels in unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) from human-driven and scripted to adaptive and self-managing. UUVs can execute longer and more challenging missions, and include functionality that enables adaptation to unexpected oceanic or vehicle changes. As such, the UNDERSEA artifact facilitates the development, evaluation and comparison of self-adaptation solutions in a new and important application domain. UNDERSEA comes with predefined oceanic surveillance UUV missions, adaptation scenarios, and a reference controller implementation, all of which can easily be extended or replaced.
