초록

A device controlling the depth and motion of an object underwater by using a processor to accurately control the volume of gas within, and thereby the buoyancy, depth, and motion (rate of ascent and descent) of, a buoyancy chamber that is attached to the object. The device has a central component incorporating a processor and associated memory, the processor being in communication with: a buoyancy chamber and a means for measuring the volume or level of gas within, at least one gas control mechanism(s) to input and remove gas from the buoyancy chamber; a...
