CASE ROV – Petrobras

Business: Oil Production.

Challenge: Development of a virtual ROV simulator and study of its technical viability.

Solution: Complete integrated fluid-multibody modelling using MSC.Adams and Matlab/Simulink and real time interface with operator via joysticks.

Value: The simulator holds the ROV, arms and umbilical cable dynamics, the interaction between mechanical models and hydrodynamics forces and torques, control systems, visualization through virtual cameras and real time control via joysticks.
