Abstract: Autonomous under water vehicles are ideal platforms for search and rescue operations. They can also be used for inspection of underwater terrains. These vehicles need to be autonomous and robust to cope with unpredictable current and high pressures. This paper will touch on the issues encountered in designing such a vehicle. Typical solutions as well as new ideas will be discussed to overcome these design problems or obstacles. The paper will also show the implementation of such a vehicle
