Challenges Facing Underwater Robotic Arms:

However, the utilization of underwater robotic arms is not without its challenges. These machines must contend with:

  • Extreme Conditions: Operating in underwater environments exposes robotic arms to extreme pressure, temperature, and corrosive saltwater.
  • Limited Visibility: Poor visibility can make navigation and object recognition difficult, increasing the risk of collisions.
  • Communication Difficulties: Underwater communication is constrained, impeding real-time data transfer and remote control.
  • Navigation: Navigating in three dimensions and avoiding obstacles is complex, especially in confined spaces.
  • Power Supply: Energy-efficient systems are essential for extended missions, as power supply constraints can limit operational duration.
  • Corrosion Resistance: Prolonged exposure to saltwater requires corrosion-resistant materials and protective coatings.
  • Biofouling and Maintenance: Biofouling (accumulation of marine organisms) and regular maintenance can disrupt operations.
  • Depth Limitations: Many robotic arms have depth limitations that hinder deep-sea exploration.
  • Skilled Personnel: Complex operations often necessitate skilled personnel for control and troubleshooting.
  • High Costs: The development, deployment, and maintenance of underwater robotic arms can be prohibitively expensive.
