Abstract: Benchmarking is nowadays an issue on robotic research platforms, due to the fact that it is not easy to reproduce previous experiments and to know in detail in which real conditions other algorithms have been applied. In the context of Underwater interventions with semi-autonomous robots the situation gets even more interesting. Experiments performed by other researchers normally do not include the whole set of real conditions such as visibility or even water currents data that would allow the best scientific procedure. Underwater interventions and specially those performed on real sea scenarios are expensive, difficult to perform and reproduce. For this particular scenario, the use of an open platform simulation tool, with benchmarking capabilities can provide an enormous help, as will be shown in the present paper. The Underwater Simulator UWSIM (http://www.irs.uji.es/uwsim) has been shown to be a very useful tool for simulation, integration and benchmarking, during the experiments performed in the context of the FP7 TRIDENT Project. In particular, in this paper the use of the benchmarking capabilities of the UWSim platform for grasping autonomously an object (airplane black box) from the sea floor in different water visibility and current conditions will be shown.
