The aim of the paper is to give an overview of an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) developed by Temasek Polytechnic for pipeline tracking. Besides mechanical design, it is demonstrated that measurement and actuation task require during hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing can be implemented on an industrial PC using the xPCTargettrade by Matlab/SIMULINKtrade with minimum custom hardware. The resulting platform is flexible and scalable, enabling an engineer to perform several tasks within minimum time. Experimental results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
