The sailboat is based on a RC One Meter class vessel equipped with a low power 8-bit microcontroller board and a set of navigation sensors (compass, GPS, wind vane, ...) and a 868 MHz RF module. It has been designed to serve as a low cost replicable testbed platform for research in autonomous sailing. The embedded control system makes the sailboat completely autonomous to sail a route determined as a sequence of waypoints, adapting its sailing point dynamically to wind conditions. The control system is completed with an off-board base station that permits to monitor and control the boat or defining a new route. The system is characterized by its long autonomy and robustness in case of communication failures.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/71709||ISBN:||978-3-319-02275-8||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-319-02276-5_6||Source:||Robotic Sailing 2013: Proceedings of the 6th International Robotic Sailing Conference / Bars F., Jaulin L.
