is it ?
SPROV'er is a ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) designed
to operate underwater, in the surf
zone (depth < 15 ft). It can be controlled from the beach or
from a boat, the cable connecting the power supply and remote control
allows the SPROV'er to operate as far
as 500 feet.
profile : the SPROV'er will be easy to use,
accurate, fast and will not require
more than 2 persons to be operated. One person will control the SPROV'er from the beach and another will
collect the data on a computer. A 3D beach profile
will then be computed using a software such as MatLab.
applications : we left some space in the instrumentation
housing so that we will be able to add more sensors
