Abstract

This work deals about the underwater vehicle with integration of sensor-actuator network. The obstacle avoiding system is introduced for path planning. A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is introduced to study the hydrodynamic behavior of an underwater vehicle. CFD analysis is carried out for pure surge and heave motion. An underwater glider is most commonly used unmanned underwater vehicle but it has limitations to avoid hitting object in its path. To overcome this problem, the application of obstacle avoiding system is needed. The experimental test is carried out to validate the simulation results and experimental understand the behavior of vehicle. This underwater vehicle is equipped with obstacle avoidance system and wireless communication module. This project is an attempt to develop auto-monitoring underwater vehicle. Sensor and actuator network is used for auto monitoring and obstacle avoiding system by means of integration of infrared sensor and thrusters.
