Emergency Response to Loss of Control

If you suspect that the ROV is not responding to control inputs as it should, there may be several causes:

  • Broken or lost propeller
  • Obstructed or jammed propeller
  • Thruster failure
  • Joystick failure

Operation of the vehicle while there is an obstruction or jammed propeller can cause damage to the thruster motor or system electronics. It is best to try to recover the vehicle by hand rather that to continue to operate it in this condition.
