Autonomous underwater vehicles - robot submarines - are revolutionizing the way in which researchers and industry obtain data. Advances in technology have resulted in capable vehicles that have made new discoveries on how the oceans work and have dramatically reduced the cost to industry of surveying the seabed. Technology and Applications of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles describes the technologies that have made this happen and a host of applications from fish abundance studies to finding diamonds beneath the sea. This book will help the next generation of engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government laboratories to continue in research, defense, and industry.
