This engineering project aims to develop a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for efficient coastal exploration. Currently, divers are deployed to do coastal exploration and coral surveying. However, this poses a lot of issues. Firstly, it is expensive to start a diving operation. In addition, it poses a risk to the divers, as they may be endangering their lives when diving. It is also time-consuming and inefficient. The ROV is made using PVC pipe sections, brushless DC (BLDC) motors and a radio control unit, to allow control of the vehicle in the sea and across long distances. A GoPro 7 camera is added to the ROV as well. The proposed solution is able to help solve the problem quite well as it can safely analyse the corals without destroying them. There are some applications for this. Firstly, the GoPro 7 attached to the ROV allows users to observe the underwater surroundings. Also, now divers are not needed to dive into the water to look at the corals as it can all be done by the ROV, which also helps reduce cost because dive operations are not needed.

Keywords : Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), BLDC Motors.
