A survey on uninhabited underwater vehicles (UUV)
MetadataShow full item record
This work presents the initiation of our underwater robotics research which will be focused on underwater vehicle-manipulator systems. Our aim is to build an underwater vehicle with a robotic manipulator which has a robust system and also can compensate itself under the influence of the hydrodynamic effects. In this paper, overview of the existing underwater vehicle systems, thruster designs, their dynamic models and control architectures are given. The purpose and results of the existing methods in underwater robotics are investigated.
