Dynamic modeling and simulation of underwater robotic vehicles is essential for control. In this paper, systematic dynamic modeling and simulation of a remotely-operated vehicle (ROV) was developed and named as ROV Design and Analyses (RDA). For initial design, hydrodynamic coefficients used in the ROV dynamic model were estimated using computational-fluid dynamic software and experiments. The proposed RDA toolbox written in MATLAB and Simulink platform provides a means to simulate the mathematical models of ROV and the control system design before final hardware implementation. The control simulation using a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller is able to model the positions and velocities output of the ROV that is highly uncertain and nonlinear.
