A small, innovative robotic platform for underwater surveys in shallow water is proposed. The platform integrates a commercially available, remotely operated, underwater micro vehicle and a specifically designed and constructed actuated buoy. The mechatronic structure and the control architecture of the platform are described together with its functional features. Tests to validate the implemented constructive solutions are briefly reported, together with functional tests to assess usability in geolocalizing underwater targets.

Keywords: Marine robotics; Remotely operated vehicles; Autonomous surface vehicles
