Our objective is to make an operating model of an autonomous water surface vehicle (ASV) that's multi-modular in nature, i.e. makes use of multiple modules and sensors so as to sense and actuate the specified functions to suit our desired methodology of travel, conjointly keeping in mind a path-saving algorithmic rule, that takes into consideration GPS reference system to reach out heading and course modification angles. This, in order to capture the desired telemetry and data from the onboard sensors at the specified locations in the path, then return to base for the retrieval of the data for analysis. The principle of navigation involves two solutions, close range navigation, and broad navigation. An ultrasonic sensor will provide close range navigation, while the GPS module, will help with broad navigation. Both these systems are crucial for the primary function of this vehicle, which is locomotion over a water body. The secondary function is the collection of photographic data of point of interests over the relevant area.
