Recent technological advances have allowed unmanned underwater vehicles to act with more autonomy, allowing them to embark on longer missions to increasingly deeper and more difficult environments. While these vehicles can navigate themselves as they collect and process data, human intervention is still required to replenish their power supplies. Truly autonomous long-duration missions will likely be difficult until the energy sources in these vehicles can be replenished without human…
