Abstract

The Dangerous Inspection & Versatile Exploration Robot (DIVER) is an underwater remotely operated vehicle designed to assist, track and monitor professional scuba divers in commercial, research and military applications. Integration of custom and commercially available components allowed for hardware development of the ROV. Software development allowed for the integration of OpenTLD tracking algorithm and manual user controls for full autonomous or tele-operational missions. DIVER provides constant communication for the improvement of mission organization and professional diver safety.
