WASHINGTON, D.C. - At the heart of the Wrasse-inspired Agile Near-shore Deformable-fin Automaton (WANDA) Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), is the watertight onboard electronics pressure vessel that houses the power source, microcontroller unit, navigation and monitoring sensors, and communications hardware. Watertight connectors on the pressure vessel provide connectivity between the onboard hardware, fin actuators, and external sensors. A set of custom control algorithms uses information about the vehicle motion and surrounding environment to inform changes to the fin stroke kinematics, or fin gaits.
