What’s an ROV? An ROV is a remotely operated vehicle used by research teams as a submersible.

ROVs are tethered to ships. They are controlled by a remote either on ship or land.  They are powered by the ship. For the purpose of ocean exploration, the ROVs we use have high definition video cameras that record the live streaming video.
