The NPS Autonomous Unmanned Vehicle (AUV) Workbench is used for rehearsal, real-time control and replay of AUV/UAV missions. Physics-based hydronamics/aerodynamics and sensor propagation/interaction are used to test robot software in realistic ways. X3D graphics, DIS networking and XMSF web services are integral components. This software and associated models are open source, use open standards, and are available for shared use. This mailing list is open, unmoderated, archived.
