REMOTELY OPERATED VEHICLES


Remotely Operated Vehicles encompass a wide range of tele-operated robotics for industrial usage.  The classification includes swimming, crawling and flying mobile robots that receive telemetry and control either via hard-wired tether or via radio (or optical) frequency communications.  Historically, the ROV Track at Underwater Intervention has focused on swimming tethered robotics for usage in oil & gas as well as scientific and military applications.  Topics covered within the purview of this year’s technical track include all aspects of equipment and application for tele-operated robotics.  From the human machine interface, to power, to deployment methods/equipment, to the sensors, to the end-effector, the latest topics of interest by leading industry experts will be covered in a lively and dynamic forum.
