Attitude control systems play an integral role in many modern technologies. This project develops and inspects an autonomous attitude control system for an underwater vehicle. Throughout the project, an understanding of the fundamentals of attitude control and an appreciation for the complexity involved in a relatively simple, yet comprehensive, operational system were achieved. More specifically, the mathematic expressions, computer programs, and physical variables and components, along with the interactions between elements of the system, were extensively studied.
