Terrain Aided Navigation for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles with Local Gaussian Processes

Navigation of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) in the subsea environment is particularly challenging due to the unavailability of GPS because of rapid attenuation of electromagnetic waves in water. As a result, the AUV requires alternative methods for position estimation. This thesis describes...
