Abstract: Waterborne vessels have advanced in many ways over the last two decades. However, their usage and deployment are still labor and expertise-intensive. They need to be transported by a surface vessel to the deployment area, which causes a substantial increase in transportation and logistics costs. In this paper, a modular design approach to the universal robotic housing is presented for off-the-shelf UAVs that enable them to operate on the water surface using the thrust force transferred from the UAV rotors through a clutch mechanism. The transformable robotic housing is outfitted with a waterproof cover sliding back and forth on its frame by a servo motor integrated link mechanism. The waterproof cover opens and closes depending on whether the UAV unit is airborne or on the water surface. Compared to the custom-built UAV-USV hybrid vehicle or collaborative operations of two individual vehicles, the proposed housing, which is easily reproducible and disposable, can be straightforwardly scaled to accommodate off-the-shelf UAVs of any size. Initial experiments have been conducted in an in-lab testbed and demonstrated a promising validation toward its practical applications.
