Abstract

This study presents a comparative analysis of the performance dynamics of torpedoshaped and cubic symmetrical autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) within the unique context of Indonesian marine environments. The dynamics of these AUV models were assessed in MATLAB's ode45 solver, incorporating real-world sea wave data from Indonesian waters as external disturbance variables. As the AUVs were subjected to these disturbances, the performance of each model's positional capability was critically evaluated to determine their respective hydrodynamic attributes. Notably, the cubic symmetrical AUV model demonstrated superior trajectory following and differential actuation capabilities, indicating its aptness for missions necessitating meticulous path-tracking. Conversely, the torpedo-shaped AUV showcased an enhanced robustness in managing external disturbances, particularly when viewed from a bi-dimensional standpoint. The selection between these AUV models is contingent upon the specific mission requirements, including environmental factors, mission objectives, and design capabilities. This comparative investigation offers valuable insights into the design and operation of AUVs in the Indonesian marine environment, thus informing the development of optimized AUV models tailored to tackle the unique challenges of this maritime context. The findings from this study contribute significantly to the progression of underwater exploration, environmental surveillance, and offshore industries operating within Indonesian waters.
