A visual tracking system installed on MBARI ROV Ventana has demonstrated fully autonomous tracking of a gelatinous animal in the waters of Monterey Bay, California. The device, intended as an aid for human ROV pilots, will increase the feasible duration of observational experiments in the field of marine biology. This work describes the automation system and the challenges encountered during its development. These challenges have been addressed during ocean dives, throughout which the systemdoi:10.1109/oceans.2001.968274 fatcat:fhuv7wekrrhuneay4juigu2oyu
