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:
- Move control of ROVs to shore, from a safe distance.
- Overcome latency involved between onshore control centres and ROVs, through autonomous operations
- 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.
