Abstract

Torpedos are the oldest underwater vehicles. The first, made Britain in 1863 can be considered as the first underwater robot. In 1953 Riebekoft designed a robot for archaeological works in the Mediterranean Sea, using underwater television and remote control. In 1975 the RCV-225 appeared on the market; it is still used today for civil and military operations.
