Students in Engineering Technology at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi have been working on several funded research projects. This paper describes a project that has involved a good number of minority students. The project involves the design and development of a remotely operated vessel (ROV) that performs data logging in shallow water environments. The ROV employs a sophisticated control system that allows both remote control of the platform by a human operator as well as some measure of autonomous operation. The system transmits environmental data wirelessly via a radio to a control station in real-time. The paper will provide details about the project and most recent developments.
