A Graphic User Interface (GUI) for Generating NPS AUV Execution Script Files
MetadataShow full item record
The Naval Postgraduate School is on the leading edge of Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) researchand has developed its own AUV called Phoenix. A new AUV is being constructed in order to increase the vehicle’s mission capabilities. Despite its autonomy, the AUV needs to have the mission plan defined before starting. For thatpurpose, a text file containing a mission script is sent to the computer inside the robot. However, the file syntax is veryprecise and, thus, this approach to generating missions can be unsafe because it is easy to include typing errors in thetext file. This project explains the creation of a Graphic User Interface (GUI) used to automatically generate the textfile. Visual Prolog is used to realize such an interface, offering capabilities to simplify the writing of the Prolog code.The results of this work is a GUI that eliminates typing incorrect commands, provides a visualization of thecommanded trajectory, and checks the syntax of the text. In this way, users can easily, quickly and safely build the mission plan.
