Episode 13: Developing an Intelligent Low-Cost Navigational System for Underwater Vehicles


​In this summer series of podcasts, we introduce the winners of our Teledyne Marine Academic Grant for 2020. This grant offers universities and institutions the opportunity to utilize several of our flagship products free of charge for up to a six-month period to support their research programs.
In this episode, we meet Samer Ahmed Mohamed, a teaching assistant at Ain Shams University in Cairo and head of the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle project. Using their awarded Pathfinder DVL from Teledyne RD Instruments, Samer and his team will fuse the DVL technology with other stereo vision systems and the dynamic model of the vehicle itself to create a computationally efficient model for AUV navigation. He and his team will participate virtually this year in RoboSub 2020.​
