Nowadays, in technology, humans use machines, mobile devices and robots to make the work easier, effective and faster. However, in Malaysia, there is still a lack of underwater vehicles used for inspection or investigation on the seafloor. The aim of this project is to develop the Remotely Operated Unmanned Underwater Vehicle for underwater Inspection (ROU-VUI) which has a compact size and low cost. This mobile device will act as a pre-screening for detecting underwater problems and for explorations where high-resolution cameras are used for real-time monitoring and recording the video for further analysis. The controller used is Arduino microcontroller and MDSS10A smart drive motor to control the movement of the mobile. The graphical user interface (GUI) LabVIEW is designed to make the inspection and monitoring process easier when it is in the water. An operator will observe the underwater vehicle via a camera that links to the smart phone and graphical user interface.
