Description

Underwater Rovers explore the ocean depths under remote control. The famous Titanic wreck was explored by a large rover called Argo, but most underwater rovers are used for more routine inspection tasks. Sea Rovers can drive to depths of up to 120 meters and travel at 1.5 knots while relaying color video pictures from under the sea.
