Underwater Multi-Agent Cooperative Communication: In order to improve the communication between a transmitter and a receiver a robotic swarm, utilizing a particle swarm optimization algorithm, searches a pre-defined space for the position with the lowest SNR. After the position is located the swarm member with the lowest recorded noise level acts as a relay between the transmitter and the receiver.
LiDAR and PiCam Image Fusion: Combined the distance information provided by a TurtleBOT LiDAR with an image from a PiCam by encoding the distance information in each pixel of the image. This resulted in an 2D image which would display the distance of every object from the camera.
