In the process of manufacturing, upon initial design, sealing is indeed one of the key challenges in underwater robot fabrication. In this paper, different sealing techniques were investigated and then, an eco-friendly and cost-effective technique for efficient sealing of autonomous underwater robots was proposed, allowing minimizing the cost of drawbacks after manufacturing.
