Welcome to the website of UWSim, an UnderWater SIMulator for marine robotics research and development. UWSim started with the RAUVI and TRIDENT research projects as a tool for testing and integrating perception and control algorithms before running them on the real robots.
UWSim visualizes an underwater virtual scenario that can be configured using standard modeling software. Controllable underwater vehicles, surface vessels and robotic manipulators, as well as simulated sensors, can be added to the scene and accessed externally through network interfaces. This allows to easily integrate the visualization tool with existing control architectures.
This website will continuously report the latest news and achievements in the UWSim development and will provide support for users and developers.
