Abstract: This paper presents the Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) trainer or called it as the ROV Trainer for the educational purpose. Many underwater industries are involved in developing underwater robot in order to reduce human works as well as increase productivity; efficiency and monitoring. Therefore; the ROV was designed in order to replace the divers and reduce a risk to a diver itself. However; the major constraints to the ROV designed are understanding and knowledge the fundamental of the ROV design. Therefore; ROV Trainer is designed in order to give a basic knowledge and as a platform to test the control system of the ROV. ROV Trainer was a design based on maneuverability and performance of each component with minimum cost where the size of ROV can be varied based on user needed. The Peripheral Interface Controller (PIC) is used to control the movement of this ROV either as manual control or autonomous control. The experiment carried out from this ROV trainer such as buoyancy test; pressure test; measure thrust and controlling the ROV will be covered in ROV Trainer. This project will give many benefits for educational researcher; school educational kits and also related underwater industries by looking at ROVs features with the needed minimum cost of implementation.
