ROV – Remotely Controlled Robot Camera
What is an ROV?
An rov is a remotely controlled robot camera. Once you have launched your rov you will sit in front of a tv screen on your boat or from the back of your van for instance and fly your rov from the surface. You have a hand controller to steer and dive the sub and it feels like you are underwater yourself! And you do fly it! In three dimensions up / down / left / right etc. It is a bit like flying a helicopter underwater. I use an old v.c.r. to record my dives but a d.v.r is not expensive now. It is great fun and you will get smitten by it! Also it is a very important industry and you may end up in a very lucrative career!
