PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide an underwater robot having superior pressure resistance and water resistance, and facilitating replacement of each module by composing the single function modules into an independent unit by achieving communication by radio.
SOLUTION: The underwater robot includes: a plurality of independent units 2, and 7 that store single function modules containing at least a working device 2b and a control device 7b in pressure resistance waterproof cases 2a and 7a; chassis 5 and 6 that can detachably attach the independent units 2 and 7; and a non-conductive transmission medium 10 that is contacted and fixed to the outside of the pressure resistance waterproof cases 2a and 7a without boring holes on the cases. The independent units 2 and 7 house communication means 2c and 7c and batteries 2d and 7d, and the control device 7b communicates through the communication means 7c of the independent unit of the control device and the communication means 2c of an independent unit that stores other single function modules, and controls other single function modules, and controls the entire operation as the underwater robot.
