China’s self-developed technology facilitates underwater robot’s new depth record

China’s self-developed technology has facilitated a depth record set by underwater robot in 2018. One of China’s underwater robots, the Haixing 6000, also known as Starfish 6000, set a national depth record for a Chinese remotely operated vehicle in October, by diving 6,001 meters below the sea surface during its first research expedition. Haixing 6000 was developed by a team at the Shenyang Institute of Automation under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). It is the first remotely-operated underwater vehicle built by China that is capable of diving 6,000 meters deep. It reached a maximum depth of 6,001 meters, and completed a series of underwater tasks in three hours, including deep-sea observation, biological research, soil and water sample collection, and a simulative black box search. The main task of the remotely-operated underwater robot with cable is to complete various deep-sea operations. The mother vessel and the deep-sea robot are connected by a 7,000-meter-long cable for power transmission.
