Abstract: In our proposed work, the developed Acoustic Unmanned Vehicle(AUV) moves in the direction of up/down. In general AUV is mainly used to for visual observation of the underwater environment by using a web camera. The acquired data from the AUV was preprocessed and the same image used for enhancement.. In this project, the image enhancement alogrithms has been implemented and the same has been computed for Canny Edge Detection, Hue, Luma and Saturation. From these computed results, we are able to enhance the quality of images for the conditions like low depth, low light intensity and color contrasting has been achieved using LABVIEW.
Keywords: Acoustic Unmanned Vehicle, Canny Edge Detection, LabVIEW.
