USV Wiki
USV full name:¬†Unmanned Surface Vehicle. USV is a fully automatic surface robot that can be navigated in accordance with the default task without the need for remote control, with precise satellite positioning and self sensing. USV used in oceanographic research, June 2011 Unmanned surface vehicles (USV) or autonomous surface vehicles (ASV) are vehicles that operate on the surface of the water (watercraft) without a crew. USVs are valuable in oceanography, as they are more capable than moored or drifting weather buoys, but far cheaper than the equivalent weather ships and research vessels, and more flexible than commercial-ship contributions. Wave gliders, in particular, harness wave energy for primary propulsion and, with solar cells to power their electronics, have months of marine persistence for both academic and naval applications. Powered USVs are…
