Micro-ROV limitations

Post by RahmaMagdy » Sat Jan 16, 2021 6:55 am

Our company is wondering about the limitations of using the micro-ROV,
the manual mentioned that we can use it to provide us with extra view to
increase the vision while it's settled in the main ROV. Our question is "Is
it permitted to us to use the grippers and manipulators of the micro-ROV while
it's fixed in the main ROV to help us doing the tasks as a second gripper for
the main ROV -other tasks rather than the drain pipe mission-".

While your micro-ROV is fixed to your primary ROV, yes, you may use its camera view, gripper or other systems to help your primary ROV as needed. It must be fixed to your primary ROV however. It cannot venture away from the primary ROV and complete any tasks on its own (other than the designated micro-ROV task).

Good luck.
