Use of Remotely Controlled Underwater Vehicle (R.O.U.V.) as a School Learning Tool
International Journal of Educational Science and Research
This article presents the construction and use of a Remotely Controlled Underwater Vehicle (ROUV) equipment with recycled and reused materials to visualize the aquatic environment obtaining images to enrich geography classes and correlated subjects such as biology and physics, because the interdisciplinarity is crucial for the construction of knowledge, arousing in the student, in a significant way, the interest in science in a practical way, using the natural coastal environment as a
... ment as a classroom, in addition to showing the reuse of discarded materials. With an academic character, the article is based on physical and mathematical theories besides the basic principles of electronics and robotics that enabled its construction and application of the vehicle in internal and external environments, seeking a greater interaction of the student with the new technologies, teaching, and the environment. This article aims to build a Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle (ROUV), allowing its use in sheltered ocean waters, rivers and lakes, in order to visualize the aquatic environment, registering images and videos to relate them to the school content and awakening the interest of the student to learn through the practice the theoretical concepts applied in the subject of high school geography, studying the forms of marine relief, as well as the deposition of sediments and their movement during the seasons.
