This event is the follow-on workshop from the IFAC Workshop on Navigation, Guidance and Control of Underwater Vehicles (NGCUV’2008), which was held in Killaloe, Ireland in April 2008. NGCUV 2012 has two main aims:
Firstly, to bring together key industrial and academic practitioners for discussions and demonstrations of recent advances in navigation, guidance, and control of unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV).
Secondly, to provide a forum where experienced researchers can engage with each other and with postdoctoral students in order to share experiences and motivate new research agendas. In line with the current trend worldwide, special attention will be given to the challenging tasks of multiple vehicle cooperative navigation and control in the presence of stringent acoustic communication constraints, as well as non-conventional geophysical based navigation methods.
