Eleven chapters of the present book reflect the emphasis in the development and research of unmanned marine vehicles that was mainly made on the remotely operated and autonomous vehicles. The following two chapters are specifically addressing the underwater vision and its role in the unmanned marine vehicle navigation.
The other four chapter deal mainly with the unmanned surface vehicles, while the closing chapter of the publication addresses the underwater gliders. Each of the chapters is some sort of self-contained exposition of the undertaker research work and some observations have also been provided.
The motion equations developed for the UUVs have been provided in chapter two of the book, together with the various aspects of ocean currents. In the next chapter it is suggested that the a usual set of feedback controllers is there in the form of auto-pilot functions providing for the regulation of the speed, heading and depth/altitude of the vehicle.
The fourth chapter is covering the technical guidance and control by means of a behavioral approach, while the fifth chapter presents a mixed approach for allocation of the thruster control or overactuated open framed remotely controlled vehicle... The book is continued within the next publication titled Further Advances in Unmanned Marine Vehicles.
