This paper presents modelling of a newly-built remotely operated vehicle utilising theoretical and CFD simulation methods and the development of simulation programs to predict the behaviour of the ROV using LabVIEW. In order to design and to implement precise control of a ROV during missions, mathematical models with hydrodynamic coefficients are required. Hydrodynamic coefficients of the proposed mathematical model are determined by analytical and CFD simulation methods supplemented by experimental work. A computer simulation is developed to verify the coefficients and mathematical model of the ROV under various manoeuvres.
