Mechatronics and Motionability of an Underwater Robot : A Review

  title={Mechatronics and Motionability of an Underwater Robot : A Review},
  author={Vivian A. Asare and Rohit Sunil Shende},
Most of the research activities have been latterly emphasized on the prototype and actualization of the underwater mechanisms. This paper is related to the evolution of the aquatic robots with their morphology and functional attributes in unstructured habitats. The deployed system construction of such robots with different stuffs that advanced the robots from substantial to micro magnitude in underwater environments is reported. Furthermore, different automations that allow the robots with…
