Talk-06: Applying Reproducibility to Maritime Robotics Research

Scott R. Sideleau, NUWC-DIVNPT

There is a desire to realize reproducibility in the domain of maritime robotics as it relates not only to the transparent in-field testing of behavioral algorithms developed in various enabling simulation environments, but also to more easily facilitate adoption and reuse and further enhancement by other practitioners. In this work, I formally exercise methods of reproducibility available to users of the MOOS-IvP autonomy architecture, demonstrate the ability to seamlessly deploy robotic behaviors tested in said simulation environments, and explore how virtualization technologies (i.e. Docker containers) can be leveraged to further reduce the barrier to entry in maritime robotics.
