Underwater robotics is a branch of robotics that covers the research and development, design, manufacture, and application of robots operating in underwater environments. The term can refer to any robot functioning at or below water level (marine robotic systems). Still, it usually refers specifically to autonomous vehicles designed for use underwater. An underwater robot also called an autonomous underwater vehicle, is a machine that can be remotely operated. It is designed to work underwater for continuous oceanic surveillance. Robotics has been utilized in manufacturing in the past few years. The marvelous expansion has made them more cultured and dependable for military and law implementation applications. Underwater robots play a significant role in the expansion of the offshore industry. In addition, it has numerous implementations in marine biology, underwater archaeology, and maritime security.
Market Dynamics of the Asia-Pacific Underwater Robotics Market Include:
- Increasing use of underwater robotics for military and security purposes
Asia Pacific region has shown a rapid increase in the use of underwater robotics due to its use in various military missions and operations and in security purposes at the port and sea. Surveillance and intelligence gathering are two factors that have boosted the use of underwater robotics for military and security purposes.
- Rising use of ROVs in the oil & gas industries
