  • i5 CPU or equivalent
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 3D performance oriented graphics card with a minimum of 1 GB video RAM
  • Monitor capable of 1680×945 pixels (ROVsim² O&G can be run on 1, 2 or 3 monitors)
  • Logitech Extreme 3D joystick and Logitech F310 gamepad**
  • Logitech Gaming Software

Additional recommended system and options:

  • Windows 64 bit Operating System (Windows 7, 10 recommended)

 ROVsim² O&G (with Instructor’s 3D Display) system requirements:

  • Windows 64 bit operating system (Windows 7, 10 recommended)
  • High performance i7 class computer
  • Minimum 4 GB system RAM
  • High performance 3D graphics adapter capable of working with 3 monitors
  • Three (3) monitors* capable of displaying the same screen resolution (ie. all monitors can display 1024×768). The monitors do not have to be the same physical dimensions but should have the same native resolution aspect ratio.
  • Mouse or trackball
  • Hand controller for ROV control**
  • Hand controller for manipulator control**
  • Keyboard or numeric keypad for instructor’s remote control of currents, environment and casualties.***

* The program can be run on a single monitor, which is useful during demonstrations, but for IMCA/DNV compliance must be displayed on 3 separate monitors (video, sonar, and instructor’s 3D display).

** The Logitech Extreme 3D Pro and Gamepad F310 are an effective, low cost solution for an IMCA Class B simulator, however to comply with the requirements for a Class A simulator controls similar to the real ROV will need to be used.    This can be accomplished in a number of ways, but most commonly by building a custom hand controller or by use of a custom serial to USB interface.  We provide both of these solutions and will be happy to discuss your specific requirements.

*** Remote control of currents, environment and casualties is triggered through the computer keyboard’s numeric pad.
