An adaptive multilayer neural network controller for high precision maneuvering of underwater vehicles is presented. Maneuvering of underwater vehicles requires special attention to a number of factors, including thruster and vehicle’s nonlinearities, couplings which exist between various degrees of freedom as well as effects of the sea currents. The neuro control system for underwater
vehicle maneuvering described in this paper is based on a conventional controller supported with the so-called adaptive neural network. The adaptive neural network has two tunable layers, thus
the problem of selection of proper basis is avoided.
