Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) diving equipment system is an important device in oil and gas exploration and production, especially in the conditions of working in deep and complex waters. By design, the ROV Panther Plus 932 has no reverse steering function, limited visibility and difficult operation. To overcome that shortcoming, the authors have studied and fabricated an electronic circuit to take charge of the power reversing function on the Joystick with a function button and a Forward/Revert status indicator light. After adjusting, designing, controlling the ROV in the opposite direction, there is no need to turn the head, avoid twisting, burning cables, getting caught in obstacles or being caught up in the ROV during work, increasing cable life.
