An autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) is a robot which travels underwater without requiring input from an operator. AUVs constitute part of a larger group of underwater systems known as unmanned underwater vehicles. In military applications AUVs are more often referred to simply as unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs).
