Underwater Robotics or Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) is a project that
involves research and implement of the robots prototype. ROV are commonly used in
oil and gas industries for pipeline inspection and maintenance which involve
dangerous task and high risk enviromnent. Besides that it also used for underwater
exploration and research for marine scientist. Due to that. research and development
on ROV is important in order to improve and extend the capabilities of the ROV. The
scope of study for this project is to design and build a fully working prototype of
ROV which involve testing the prototype designed, circuit design and simulation,
waterproofing components and programming the hardware. The capability and
feasibility of the designed prototype is tested using several methods, for example
testing the buoyancy of the ROV by applying the Archimedes principles. The focus
of this project is to design build a small working prototype which capable of
manoeuvring under the water and do monitoring task using a less degree of complex
technologies and with a cheaper cost. The ROV also will be able to send any data to
the computer via UART protocol while under the water.
