Abstract

A blackboard approach to the mission management for autonomous underwater vehicle E.A.P. Silva, F.L. Pereira & J.

The resulting plan will be considered as a reference basis for future actions once the mission has started. As the mission develops, a blackboard based coordinating structure (in the intermediate hierarchic level) will adopt the adequate mission achievement and safety oriented behaviors as a response to continuously monitored mission state and detected internal and ex
