Bruzzone G., Bono R., Caccia M., Coletta P., Veruggio G. Internet-based Teleoperation of the ROMEO ROV in the Arctic Region. In: MCMC 2003 - 6th IFAC Conference on Manoeuvring and Control of Marine Craft (Girona, Spain, 17-19 Semptember 2003). Proceedings, pp. 1 - 5. IFAC, 2003.
In this paper the Internet-based teleoperation system of the underwater vehicle Romeo, and some relevant experiments performed in field, will be described. Romeo is the latest ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) prototype for scientific applications and robotics research developed by Robotlab, the Robotics Group of the CNR-ISSIA Genoa Branch. In these last years there has been an increasing effort at Robotlab in designing, developing and building a complete software and hardware communication infrastructure for ROVs that might enable a fruitful and effective Internet teleoperation. Operating in this research framework, in September 2002, in the course of a campaign performed in the Arctic Region, some Internet-based teleoperation tests of Romeo were carried out. During the experiments, some marine scientists connected to the World Wide Web had the opportunity, acting from the comfort of their labs, to remotely operate the ROV immerse in the Kongsfjord in Norway and to explore the seabed taking photographs of the marine flora and fauna.
