AbstractAutonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are self-propelled robotic platforms that can perform a predetermined mission completely unmanned. A series of manoeuvring experiments were performed using the MUN Explorer AUV during the summer of 2006 and a selection of these experimental results are presented in this paper. The purpose of these experiments was to collect a set of useful data for validating a hydrodynamic model of the dynamic performance of the vehicle. This paper aims at explaining the methods and measures adopted in accomplishing this task. Apart from providing a data set for validation of the hydrodynamic model, the data record also shows the ability of the AUV to perform extreme manoeuvres and the accuracy with which it can follow a pre-planned mission.
