Underwater Robotics: Science, Design & Fabrication

Authors: Dr. Steven W. Moore, Harry Bohm, and Vickie Jensen

This book introduces students, educators and other aspiring inventors to subsea technology. This exciting resource provides the information needed to design and build underwater vehicles. It also encourages bright young minds to consider a career in the world of underwater robotics.

This textbook is written for advanced high school classes or college and university entry-level courses. Each chapter begins with a true scenario that sets the stage for the ocean science, physics, math, electronics, and engineering concepts that follow. The final chapter features step-by-step plans for building SeaMATE, a basic shollow-diving ROV. There is also a “What’s Next?” section that’s full of ideas for modifications and more complex underwater projects.

The 850-page informative text is enhanced by hundreds of photos, illustrations, and diagrams of underwater vehicles. In addition, the textbook includes a discussion of subsea vehicle development, resource appendices, an extensive glossary, and a complex index.
