Goby Wiki

This is the wiki for the Goby Underwater Autonomy Project.

The Goby Underwater Autonomy Project aims to create a unified framework for multiple scientific autonomous marine vehicle collaboration, seamlessly incorporating acoustic, ethernet, wifi, and serial communications. Presently the main thrust of the project is developing a set of robust acoustic networking libraries.

Il semble que la perfection soit atteinte non quand il n'y a plus rien à ajouter, mais quand il n'y a plus rien à retrancher. (Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but rather when there is nothing more to take away.)

-- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Terre des Hommes (1939)
