Dariush Forouher, Jan Hartmann, Jan Helge Klüssendorff, Erik Maehle, Benjamin Meyer, Christoph Osterloh, Thomas Tosik


HANSE is a low-cost Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) capable of solving many common underwater challenges. In this paper we will present HANSE's modular and expandable hardware and software design, the underwater simulator MARS, as well as robust and efficient sonar-based localization and vision-based object detection algorithms, with which we have successfully participated in the Student Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge in Europe (SAUC-E) 2011.
