Development of the STARFISH AUV


    During the MEng and Ph.D studies, I was part of the STARFISH AUV core team at the ARL, Tropical Marine Science Institute (TMSI), National University of Singapore (NUS). I was responsible for the design and development of the Command and Control (C2) system of the AUV. Besides that, I was also involved in the AUV’s system and sensor driver developments, testings and debugging. Currently, there are two STARFISH AUVs in operation at the ARL.
