Remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs) are increasingly being used in applications such as inspection, photography, and recovery. ROVs can operate under extreme conditions such as great depth, low temperature, and limited visibility. They can also operate over long time periods and provide valuable continuous data. Visually realistic underwater simulation frameworks can be used to simulate the behavior of an ROV and test computer vision and control algorithms in highly complex models of aquatic environments. Simulated models of rocks, fish, marine plankton, and the ROV tether are all important parts of an underwater vision-based simulation. Simulated computer vision capabilities together with dynamic models will enable us to perform full end-to-end experiments in a highly controlled environment and to test new concepts such as autopiloting prior to being deployed in the real ROV.
