Introduction: ROV

A remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) is a tethered underwater mobile device. This meaning is different from remote control vehicles operating on land or in the air. ROVs are unoccupied, highly maneuverable, and operated by a crew aboard a vessel.

Step 1: Materials

  • Control Box
  • 3 Gear
  • Switches
  • Wire Battery Pack
  • Ethernet Cable
  • PVC Pipe
  • Motors 3x
  • Soldering Iron
  • Solder
  • Wire Connectors

Step 2: Switches

Switches are the most important thing in the ROV. if we don't have the switch we cannot control our ROV. In our switch, we can control our motor to go back, forward, up, down, and stop.

Step 3: Wires and Switches

We connected positive and negitive wires in switches.

Step 4: Box

We made 3 holes to put 3 switches in those holes.

Step 5: Motors

We need 3 motors that we can use it in our ROV.

Step 6: Battery Box

We need the power to turn on our motors. so we need a battery box, and we have to connect that to switches properly.

Step 7: Waterproofing the Motors

We have to waterproof our motors because we could use it in water. we need 4 inches PVC pipe. we have to cut it same as our motor size.

Step 8: Motors, Wire, and Switches

we need at least 20 feet wire to connect the switches to the motors. when we want to connect the wire with our motors we have to do the same thing with all three switches, and same thing with batteries.

Step 9: Propeller

One of the most important thing in ROV is the propeller. we need 3 Propeller that we can use each one of them in each motor. if we already have Propeller we can use that, and if we don't have we have to 3D print it.

Step 10: Print the ROV

We need a good ROV that can carry three motors
