An AUV model, which main hall is made of newly developed ceramics, to capture Jellyfish that inhabits in 7000meter deep sea was developed. For search, approach and terminal to the target, a searching system using a set of sheet lasers and a stereo vision system were also developed and mounted to the AUV. Diving to the deep sea, the AUV finds the target using sheet lasers, and then approaches and swallows it in its mouth. Efficacy of the total system was demonstrated through the tank test.
