CADCON Downloads

Three types of software clients are available for FTP download. These applications are self-extracting and work within the Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP environments.

CADCON Visualization Client

The Visualization client is an OpenGL-based application that allows the user to view aspects of the underwater simulation environment, as well as information related to individual vehicles in that environment. Using a standard 2-button mouse, the user can 'fly' through the virtual underwater environment to monitor vehicle reactions to high-level commands. Vehicle data such as position and speed are also available.

AUVSim Client

The AUVSim client can be used to simulate a vehicle within the environment. Currently, the vehicle simulator allows the user to model several body shapes, including a torpedo, an open space frame, a bottom crawler and a fixed mooring. A simple communication protocol is employed that allows these clients to send simulated acoustic messages to one another. A simple controller in each allows the vehicles to react to these messages.

ASMACSim Client

The ASMACSim client provides a testbed for development of multi-vehicle monitoring and control concepts within the CADCON environment. A key concept in this application is that all vehicle information is sent and received using a common control language (CCL) protocol, which is understood by the AUVSim clients.
