During the inspection the ROV was capable of providing HD quality videos of the rudder and propellers, which were satisfactory. Also the vehicle was found safe operationally and was maneuverable in tight spaces too. The videos of underwater structures were also live streamed and with which we were able to guide the vehicle to required points of interest to have close visuals.
Overall the demonstration was satisfactory and we expect to employ the ROVs of IROV Technologies Pvt Ltd further when future requirements arises.
