Talk-15: The MOOS is dead, long live the MOOS!

Mohamed Saad Ibn Seddik, blkSAIL

Deploying an autonomous system today comes with new, different challenges than 20 years ago. And the next 20 years will bring a set of challenges that one can barely imagine. In this talk, an updated MOOS Core is proposed, preparing for a prosperous 20 years to come.

The new core takes advantage of established Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) protocols and simplicity of the existing MOOS Core library. Existing applications are only required to be linked to the new library; no code changes. The updated MOOS Core enables encrypted communication between processes, message level access control, and multiple levels of Quality-of-Service (QoS) to prioritize critical messages. While the updated architecture is centralized and has limited data streaming capabilities (similar to the current architecture), these tradeoffs were unavoidable to allow microcontrollers, and web and mobile applications to connect and exchange data.
