This paper investigates the possibility of applying a hybrid control with a fuzzy approach for redundancy resolution to an autonomous underwater vehicle-manipulator system (UVMS). This algorithm generates a desired trajectory for the vehicle that takes into account two control objectives: the energy savings and the increase of system manipulability by a smooth actuation. The computer simulation results demonstrate the efficiency of this approach.
