This paper presents a spherical underwater robot which uses three vectored water-jet propellers as its propulsion system. In this paper we introduced the conceptual design of the spherical underwater robot including the hull, waterproof chamber, propulsion system. Then we develop a prototype of this spherical underwater robot. Finally, we carry out confirmatory experiments to verify the availability of the design of the spherical underwater robot.
