This paper discusses the framework design and implementation of underwater robot (AUV / ROV). With the increasing importance of Marine resources and the complexity of Marine environment, underwater robots, as an important technical means, play an increasingly important role in the field of Marine development and utilization. This paper first summarizes the research significance of underwater robot, as well as the research dynamics at home and abroad, which provides the background and basis for the subsequent research. First, the main body framework is modeled with Solidworks, and then ANSYS finite element analysis is used to analyze the strength and static force of the ROV ontology framework, and then the equivalent force map and equivalent elastic strain map is obtained. Research samples are provided for subsequent studies with other carrying devices.
