Coordinated Formation Control of Multiple Autonomous Underwater Vehicles for Pipeline Inspection

This paper addresses the control problem of inspecting underwater pipeline on the seabed, with coordinated multiple autonomous underwater vehicles in a formation. Based on the leader-follower strategy, the dedicated nonlinear path following controller is rigorously built on Lyapunov-based design, dr...
