This dissertation consists of five mam parts; the introduction, literature
review, methodology, result and discussion as well as conclusions. Topics on
Remotely Operated Vehicle (R.O.V.) system and its functions are discussed in details
in the literature section, explaining on what can be expanded and applied in this
project. The work class R.O.V. is the most common system in the R.O.V. business,
being also the biggest in size and having the most complicated management system
compared to the other four systems; eye-ball class, observation class, trekker class
and wireless class. Thus, a scaled down version of the R.O.V. is appropriate to
expand the scope of R.O.V.'s functions in education, underwater security and the
fishing industry. This mini R.O.V. prototype is designed to be portable, easy-tohandle
and small in size with the target maximum depth of 3 m. The R.O.V. is
divided into 5 main parts; propulsion, lighting, camera, frame and buoyancy. The
methodology for this project began with the itemization, calculation of overall power
usage and followed by the design, building, testing and modification of each of the
main parts. The significant of this mini R.O. V. prototype project is that it can help
develop the R.O.V. business to increase its functions and marketability into the
education world for children's exploration, underwater security in the shipping
industry and also benefiting the fishing industry to observe the fishes' population. In
this two semester duration of Final Year Project, the prototype is completed with a
simple propulsion system; using a 12 VDC high-torque motor and propeller with
bidirectional motor controller circuit, the lighting system; using a 12 VDC bulb with
a light dimmer and a CCTV camera being installed in the prototype.
