Underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) play an important role in a number of shallow and deep-water missions for marine science, oil and gas extraction, exploration and salvage. In these applications, the motions of the ROV are guided either by a human pilot on a surface support vessel through an umbilical cord providing power and telemetry, or by an automatic pilot. In the case of automatic...

Abstract This paper addresses the problem of designing high-precision bottom-followers for remotely operated vehicles. In the framework of hierarchical control architectures able to uncouple the robot's kinematics (guidance) and dynamics (velocity control), the task of bottom-following is accomplished by suitable guidance task functions, which enable the system to handle unmodeled, i.e. not measur...

Sliding mode control, due to its robustness against modelling imprecisions and external disturbances, has been successfully employed to the dynamic positioning of remotely operated underwater vehicles. In order to improve the performance of the complete system, the discontinuity in the control law must be smoothed out to avoid the undesirable chattering effects. The adoption of a properly designed...

The effectiveness of subsea intervention has been found to be dependent upon the capability of an autonomous underwater vehicle's (AUV's) or remotely operated underwater vehicle's (ROV's) auto-positioning system. However, these vessel's dynamics vary considerably with operating condition, and are strongly coupled; they are expensive and difficult to derive, theoretically or through conventional te...

This paper describes three 6000 meter tethered underwater vehicles - DSL-120 sonar, ARGO II mapping system and Jason/Medea remotely operated vehicle - used during the summer of 1996 for an oceanographic expedition to investigate hydrothermal vent sites at the "Lucky Strike" segment (37°N 32°W) of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge as part of the RIDGE (Ridge Inter-Disciplinary Global Experiment) Initiative (R...

The application of a neural network controller to remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) is described. Three learning algorithms for online implementation of a neural net controller are discussed with a critic equation. These control schemes do not require any information about the system dynamics except an estimate of the inertia terms. Selection of the number of layers in the neural network, the numb...

This paper proposes an actuator fault-tolerant control scheme, composed of the usual modules performing detection, isolation, accommodation, designed for a class of nonlinear systems, and then applied to an underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) used for inspection purposes. Detection is in charge of a residual generation module, while a sliding-mode-based approach has been used both for ROV c...

The paper describes an automatic dynamic positioning system for remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs) using a mechanical passive arm for position measurement that is suitable for inspection and intervention tasks requiring precise positioning. Good dynamic performance in tracking was also attained, particularly with the variable structure model reference adaptive control strategy.

We have observed the process of formation of clathrate hydrates of methane in experiments conducted on the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Ventana in the deep waters of Monterey Bay. A tank of methane gas, acrylic tubes containing seawater, and seawater plus various types of sediment were carried down on Ventana to a depth of 910 m where methane gas was injected at the base of the acrylic tubes by...
