Abstract

The EcoMapper is an autonomous underwater vehicle that has broad applications, such as water quality
monitoring and bathymetric survey. To simulate its dynamics and to precisely control it, a dynamic model is needed. In this paper, we develop a mathematical model of the EcoMapper based on computational-fluid-dynamics calculations, strip theory, and open-water tests. We validate the proposed model with the results of the field experiments carried out in the west pond in the Georgia Tech Savannah Campus.
