A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11858605B1) discloses a hybrid-power-driven underwater robot designed with a robot body and a releasing and recovering device. The robot features a first transmission cavity within the releasing and recovering device, housing a seawater removing mechanism and an electric take-up reel connected to a cable extending out of the cavity and fixed to the robot body. Additionally, a tail fin and an acceleration mechanism are included in the design, with a driving mechanism located in a second transmission cavity within the robot body capable of driving the tail fin and acceleration mechanism separately.

Furthermore, the driving mechanism of the robot comprises an array of components including an electromagnetic device, support plate, electric motor, conductor coil, and transmission strips, among others. The acceleration mechanism consists of propeller mechanisms and rotating wheels, enhancing the robot's underwater mobility. The seawater removing mechanism, on the other hand, features guide rollers, elastic extrusion rollers, and fan blades, ensuring efficient operation in underwater environments. Notably, the patent also specifies the materials used for various components, such as colored material for the cable, silica gel or sponge materials for the elastic extrusion rollers, and stainless steel for the flow drainage plate, emphasizing durability and functionality in aquatic conditions.
