Dexterous ROV: effective dexterous ROV operations in presence of communication latencies

DexROV brings together seven different organisations from all over Europe to challenge the possibilities for undersea operations. DexROV will use and evaluate new technologies to allow safer and more cost-effective undersea operations with Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs).

The goals of the project are:

  1. Move control of ROVs to shore, from a safe distance;
  2. Overcome latency involved between onshore control centres and ROVs, through autonomous  operations;
  3. Develop advanced dexterous tools with the capacity to grip and manipulate in ways similar to a human hand.

DexROV is part of the long-term Blue Growth strategy to support sustainable growth in the European marine and maritime sectors.
