The DEDAVE is far from the first autonomous underwater vehicle to be developed, but what's unique about this particular vehicle is that it is designed with a view to series production.

While pricing details have not been revealed, this vehicle will be less expensive than other autonomous underwater vehicles due to its embracing of automobile industry-style assembly line production. It weighs less than 700 kg making it relatively lightweight compared to other similar vehicles. The DEDAVE is powered by eight batteries, with a full charge allowing for 20 hours of autonomous travel to a depth of up to 6,000 meters.

The autonomous underwater vehicle is set to take off in the coming decades, and DEDAVE is getting a leg-up on the competition thanks to its relatively low price.
