Deep Sea Robots

The deep sea: a fascinating place!

Extremely harsh environment:  cold, dark, immense pressure

Difficult, dangerous, and expensive to send humans down there

Instead, build a machine that can dive into the deep sea and send back pictures and data.

ROV = Remotely Operated Vehicle

ROV pilots and scientists can sit in a warm, safe place while the ROV is deep in the ocean, sending back LIVE video and data.
