Semantic-based adaptive mission planning for unmanned underwater vehicles

Current underwater robotic platforms rely upon waypoint-based scripted missions which are described by the operator a-priori. This renders systems incapable of reacting to the unexpected. In this thesis, we claim that the ability to autonomously adapt the decision making process is the key to facili...
