Problem of Marine Growth Due to Corrosion Affects Sales of ROVs

As the ROV spends a great deal of time underwater, there is a low chance of rusting. However, when on the surface, the probability of corrosion increases, owing to dampness combined with atmospheric oxygen. This explains why the remote operated vehicle (ROV) market is slated to clock a sluggish CAGR of 3.11% during the forecast period. Hence, manufacturers are making use of special paints that break down the existing microbes and prevent new ones from attaching to the ROV surface when underwater.

Manufacturers are increasing the availability for modern ROVs that consist of a lighting system and a video camera to contribute for geology education and record subaquatic panorama view.

India Holds Lucrative Opportunities for Remote Operated Vehicle Innovations

The remote operated vehicle (ROV) market is projected to reach US$ 1.22 Bn by 2031. The Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad (IIT-H), is emerging as the innovation hub for autonomous navigation (TiHAN) for remote operated vehicles & unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), following a funding of Rs. 135 crore from the Department of Science and Technology.

Companies in the India remote operated vehicle (ROV) market are expected to collaborate with researchers from universities to innovate in vehicles. There is an essential focus on R&D investment of interdisciplinary technologies in the domain of autonomous navigation of ROVs, along with data acquisition systems.

Hybrid Wireless-driven Underwater Vehicles Tailored to Behave as ROVs

Companies in the remote operated vehicle (ROV) market are working toward wireless remote control for underwater vehicles. The increasing availability of commercial off-the-shelf underwater acoustic and non-acoustic modems are being employed for both short-range broadband & long-range low-rate communication. These new developments are inspiring companies to start designing hybrid wireless-driven underwater vehicles, specifically tailored for off-shore operations, that could behave either as remote operated vehicles or autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).

There is a need to address the limitations imposed by underwater communication channels. In order to overcome this, stakeholders in the remote operated vehicle (ROV) market are increasing R&D in underwater wireless-piloted vehicles to address the realistic aspects of the underwater domain.

Offshore Applications Create Stable Revenue Streams for Market Stakeholders

The growing offshore operations in Brazil are contributing toward growth of the Brazil remote operated vehicle (ROV) market. Marine services company C-Innovation (C-I) has ordered a package of Sonardyne’s underwater navigation and positioning systems involving ROVs & ROV support vessels (RSVs). Offshore operations in Brazil involve subsea inspection, maintenance & repair operations and ROV support. Specialists in underwater technology are taking advantage of this opportunity to deploy innovations in ROVs.

ROVs are being increasingly used for surveillance, patrolling, and industrial applications such as offshore exploration of oil & gas. Manufacturers in the remote operated vehicle (ROV) market are establishing stable revenue streams through station keeping and position stalking end uses.

Companies Take Cues from University Research Projects to Innovate in ROVs

The EDUROV educational underwater robot proposal is being publicized from the researchers of the Oceanic Platform of Canary Islands (PLOCAN) and the Computer Vision and Robotics research group of the University of Girona (VICOROB). Companies in the remote operated vehicle (ROV) market are taking cues from such researchers to innovate in underwater vehicles incorporated with different technological elements.

Companies in the remote operated vehicle (ROV) market are increasing research to develop unmanned submarine vehicles controlled by a command console based on a joystick and two pushbuttons attached to the vehicle by an umbilical cord. Such innovations hold promising potentials for innovation in ROVs. In order to conserve oceans, seas, and marine resources, there is a growing demand for remote operated vehicles that help to explore underwater environments.

ROVs Undergo Changes with Optimized Control Systems

It is becoming imperative to construct and configure remote operated vehicles in a cost effective manner. Stakeholders in the remote operated vehicle (ROV) market are challenged with issues in stability of underwater vehicles. Thus, to overcome this, manufacturers are optimizing the control system of the vehicle since it reduces the time and cost of underwater missions. Likewise, the allocation of actuators on the vehicle must be in accurate position, which leads to the precise movement and efficient usage of the energy resources.

Companies are developing control systems with good performance under harsh underwater constraints to attain a high degree of autonomy. Since proportional integral derivative (PID) is a simple control technique, it is commonly used and has been implemented successfully on different ROVs.

Portable ROVs Easy to Maintain for Light Duty Observation Applications

There is a growing demand for remote operated vehicles with powerful thrusters in order to operate in bad sea conditions or strong currents. ECA Group - a aerospace and defense company, is providing its H800 as an Observation and light duty Work Class ROV. Manufacturers are building their R&D muscle in remote operated vehicles that cater to subsea observation and inspection to light underwater works.

Manufacturers are increasing the availability of portable ROV solutions, designed with a configurable and modular architecture, thus making it very easy to equip & maintain. They are increasing capabilities in both viewing and sonar systems in order to be fitted with a wide range of sensors & manipulator arms for optimizing underwater operations.
