Since 2010, the AUVSI research team has been collecting information on every robotic platform we could find. This has culminated in a huge database of platforms from around the world. To achieve this, information has been captured from:
All information collected is from open sources. Each platform and company is evaluated by researchers for specific traits:
Detailed information is available for each platform based on publicly available specifications released by the manufacturer:
*all units are normalized and converted into both metric and imperial values.
All of this information was put into a searchable SQL database with a simple, clean web page interface. Search parameters range from the size and performance values mentioned earlier to normalized search variables such as application, energy source, airframe, etc. Search results can be viewed in the web-based interface or exported to Excel/PDF files. This database is connected to AUVSI's main site to allow for a single sign on for all AUVSI activities.
To ensure the most up-to-date information possible, AUVSI staff:
New information is added directly to the database daily and is searchable by subscribers. A weekly email is sent to subscribers highlighting updated information.
