Research in the field of underwater (UW) robotic applications is rapidly developing. The emergence of coupling the newest technologies on submersibles, different types of telecommunication devices, sensors, and soft robots is transforming the rigid approach to robotic design by providing solutions that bridge the gap between accuracy and adaptability in an environment where there is so much fluctuation in object targeting and environmental conditions. In this paper, we represent a review of the
