The toolbox provides various block diagrams for ROV control systems design.
The 3D models of some ROV vehicles, various controller design (e.g. Cascaded control, Decoupled control, Adaptive and Sliding-Mode control and etc. ),thrusters model, identification using Kalman filters are included.
Utilities such as 6DoF to 4 DoF conversions, six- sigma calculation, switching sequence, input profile are included as well. Besides the nonlinear and linear analysis are also presented.

User can refer to the readme text file for installation guides.
