The remotely controlled underwater robot system is used extensively by the scientific community to study the ocean, in support of diving operations, in military use, in educational outreach, in broadcast use. We built this system which has three components: 1) the surface control interface; 2) the intermediate device; 3) the robot itself. The presence of this robot replaces human activities where access is not allowed or life is endangered. The novelty of this device is the construction of component 2 (intermediate), which represents a storage frame for the underwater robot and part of the control umbilical cord. The frame descends with the robot to the depth of surveillance from where the robot leaves the storage frame and is further controlled to the research objective. The surveillance function is performed from the intermediary with the help of a video camera. The video camera is the IP type and can be accessed through the data over power network. The movement of the underwater device is accomplished by means of 8 electric motors (4 for horizontal control and 4 for vertical control). The robot has data acquisition and storage systems and piloting systems. The purpose of building this robot is educational research.
