Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV) are widely used for survey and mining of natural resources in the region of underwater and seabed in the last two decades. In underwater, vision and depth perception will be poor, thus navigating and maneuvering a remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) will not be an easy task. The umbilical cable might get entangled. In the event that the ROV loses power from its umbilical cord or an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) power failure, an emergency power system will be needed to power the critical equipment on the ROV or AUV to facilitate its recovery and to limit the loss of data.
