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
- Wire Battery Pack
- Ethernet Cable
- PVC Pipe
- Motors 3x
- Soldering Iron
- 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
