The use of professional scuba diving teams is an
industry practice for multiple commercial,
environmental, and military applications. Professional
divers can be deployed into dangerous conditions
where surface communication is often limited. In these
situations, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) can
improve communication and ensure personnel safety
and mission success. The objectives of the MQP focus
on designing and building a Dangerous Inspection
and Versatile Exploration Robot (DIVER) capable of
assisting, tracking, and monitoring professional divers
in commercial, military, and environmental research
applications. The DIVER ROV is 22 inches long by 26
inches wide and weighs 17.2 pounds.
