Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV)

Filetype[PDF-3.07 MB]


  • Description:
    This multi year spanning senior project is one half of a larger project aimed at mapping the ocean floor using an Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) equipped with its own Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). The AUV part of the project is the focus of this group commonly referred to as the “ROV Team”. The overall goal is to create a system that can autonomously map a section of seafloor. When it finds something of interest, it will deploy an AUV which will get a closer look at the object. This year, the ROV team focused on developing an effective and repeatable testing procedure to facilitate the implementation and development of advanced dynamic control systems into existing robotic platforms. At the start of the academic year the system consisted of many subsystems made up of different sensors, and the ROV itself ( BlueROV2 ). These systems were set up and operating together, but in a way that limited potential progress. Immediately, efforts were focused on making these separate components operate as a cohesive, uniform system. Upon designing a testing procedure that is intuitive and convenient, the energy put into research would show immediate returns in autonomous performance, preventing frustration caused by lack of organization. The unforeseen circumstances that followed the outbreak of COVID-19 will have a limited impact on the progress of the ROV team. The following class of engineers will be able to quickly understand the components that encompass ROV operation and immediately execute testing whenever possible.
