The oceans are hostile. Gathering information on life, the seabed, indeed any topic, is incredibly difficult. Autonomous Under Vehicles are robots that are revolutionising the way researchers and industry obtain data. Advances in technology have resulted in capable vehicles that have made new discoveries on how oceans work and have dramactically reduced the cost to industry of surveying the seabed. This book describes the technologies that have made this happen and a host of applications from fish abundance studies to finding diamonds beneath the sea. It is essential reading for those wanting to make the best use of autonomous vehicles.
