Abstract

Underwater robots for observing the underwater living things or investigating several resources such an rare metals etc. attract attention from people. We have developed until now a Manta robot for underwater investigation. Furthermore, the effectiveness of the developed Manta robot was checked by the underwater propulsive experiment. In this paper, we construct a system for measuring the the attitude of the developed Manta robot. The effectiveness of the constructed system is verified by some underwater experiments using the actual robot.
