The main objective of the ‘Remotely Controlled Clamping Robot for Underwater Wire Rope Inspection’ project is to improve to the software and hardware component of the existing device. The main improvement required from the software aspect was to devised new algorithms to provide more effective data analysis on the output signals and this was eventually done through the DES (Double Exponential Smoothing) method, although other algorithms were created along the way. Other improvements to the software comes in the form of integration and interface which helped provide better reliability and clarity in reading of the data. The design requirement for the hardware aspect is to incorporate clamping motion to the existing device. The final design was created through a series of technical design procedure and was able to achieve the require clamping function. While the project manage to fulfil its objective, there are still room for improvements which will also be discussed in this paper.
