Summary:
This thesis describes the development of the hardware-in-the-loop simulation for FAU Autonomous Underwater Vehicles. The development was based on the existing simulation platform. For more efficiency and flexibility, this simulation package was ported to Linux. The hardware-in-the-loop simulation enables developers to connect the vehicle directly to a remote simulator. This kind of simulation is used to test the actual software components embedded in the vehicle system. The simulation package was enhanced by the addition of a 3D viewer. This thesis describes the whole development process, from feasibility study and implementation to qualification phases. This viewer is platform independent and designed to be connected to the simulator. It renders the AUV moving in a virtual environment. This tool can be used during all development steps, from tuning phases to post-mission analysis.
