Paper Abstract

This paper aims at surveying the options of powering an Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) with renewable sources that scavenge energy from the environment. Some of the technologies that are discussed include solar power, wind power and energy from waves. Some conclusions and recommendations regarding the state-of-the-art for developing an energy scavenging unmanned surface vehicle are tabulated.
