MIT, Bluefin demonstrate plug-and-play AUV software

A team from MIT recently demonstrated its ability to swap autonomy software into autonomous underwater vehicles on the fly, a skill the group says is needed to advance AUV applications and enable rapid mission configuration changes in the field. The demonstration was conducted by MIT’s Laboratory of Autonomous Marine Sensing Systems to showcase the MOOS-IvP
