Sensor platforms are used as sources of information for certain specific environments. In the field of maritime and oceanographic systems, these platforms make it possible to sensorize certain properties of the water based on various variables, such as the oxygen level, the levels of turbidity, chlorophyll, salinity, etc. Due to the different stratifications that occur in this environment at different depths, it is necessary to perform the measurement at different depths. Therefore, this project will focus on the design of a control algorithm to manage the depth of an object with immersion capacity, thus allowing the submersible architecture to be stopped at a desired depth. The control system will be progressively analyzed, which will allow the depth to be managed depending on the position of the actuators. For this, different points will be addressed, such as the considerations and constructive characteristics of the model, the detailed study of the behavior of each of the main components of the system, as well as the response of the variables to be studied. In addition, said control system will be implemented in a microcontroller to provide the appropriate signals at each instant of time, thus allowing the actuators to introduce or dislodge a specific volume of water and, consequently, achieve an adequate and autonomous platform movement.
