To ensure their continuing integrity, the state of pipelines and cables needs to be monitored regularly. Divers, towfish ore remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs), which are traditionally used for cable & pipeline inspection, are time and human resources intensive. On the other hand, autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) represent a tool with great benefits. Therefore, a reliable localization and robust tracking system is required and it is the focus of this paper. The developed system will be tested for its performance in different pipeline layout scenarios.
