MATE Module 14: Sensor Devices

This module from the Marine Advanced Technology Education Center introduces students to the concept of sensors connected to ROV systems and covers a wide range of sensor types as used in ROV systems. Students will learn to calculate the viewing angle of a given camera lens once it is in water, waterproof a temperature sensor that can be used as a tool package and collect temperature data with it mounted on an ROV, send heading and temperature data to a HMI system and evaluate/debate several environmental issues and discuss how ROV technology could help to collect evidence or monitor the sites discussed. This page includes a number of PDF and Microsoft Word DOC files with the documents for in-class instruction.
