Title: WaVeSim - waterv vehicle simulator
Issue Date: 2006
Abstract: This article introduces a new framework for the simulation of multiplewater vehicles operating simultaneously. Its main goal is to be used as a testing toolto help the development and implementation of the vehicles on-board software.This simulator provides real-time realistic dynamic behaviour of underwater andsurface vehicles as well as acoustic navigation by simulating acoustic signalpropagation and providing acoustic transducers on vehicles and pre-located buoys.Pressure, temperature, condutivity, salinity and sonar sensors emulation is alsoprovided and water flows can also be defined. There should be no intrusion inthe existing software and a small SDK is available to help building a brokerapplication that makes the bridge between the software and the simulator, bothpossibly running on different network peers. A provided 3D visualization systemmay also be used to control and watch the simulation.
