Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are robotic vehicles that function without direct human monitoring. Their main purpose is to collect data, record 3D maps of surrounding underwater environment and conduct survey missions. However, when the AUV is implemented to undertake long-duration missions it exhibits limitations in terms of safety, energy consumption, navigation and path planning accuracy.
