Designing an Underwater ROV Purpose The purpose of our project was to design and construct an underwater remotely-operated vehicle to maneuver in the Charles River while using a sensor package to take data. The vehicle needed to be able to move in all six directions (forward, backward, up, down, left and right). The sensor package needed to measure temperature, conductivity, light and pressure. Working on the vehicle at the docks. Process Considered multiple ideas while brainstorming. Chose a simple, rectangular box design in order to minimize problems and other complications. Chose motors based on data obtained from experimentation: Propeller Type Motor (gal/min) Force (g) Volts (V) Amps (A) 3 blades 500 140 - 200 12 4.5 2 blade black 500 140 10 4.5 2 blade black 750 200 4.6 4 2 blade gray med. 500 270 10 4.5 Results from motor testing. Wanted motors that weren’t too powerful to allow for easier control. Thought that vertical motion would require more power.
