Visible to the public Physical Modeling and Software Synthesis for Self-Reconfigurable Sensors in River Environments

This collaborative research project examines the role of software synthesis for monitoring and planning of autonomous sensors evolving on tidally forced rivers. The goal of the sensors is the coordinated sampling of currents and salinity to reconstruct the distributed state of the river. This project integrates the development of theory for the coordination of autonomous agents in motion-constrained environments, and of algorithms to perform motion planning tasks, with software tools for design, analysis, and code synthesis for implementation, as well as inverse modeling (i.e.
