This presentation provides a history of the use of autonomous vehicles in the ocean up to the present day. An introduction to the differing types of autonomous system platforms, payloads, control systems and data communications are provided.  Comparisons are made to conventional systems and the advantage brought by the use of autonomy.  Examples of how autonomous vehicles are now revolutionizing the way data is collected are presented.  The barriers and challenges faced adopting the use of autonomous systems are also considered. The presentation closes with a discussion of the future of use of autonomous system on our planet and for ambitious scientific expeditions to other planets.
