The selection and implementation of a hydro-optical communication connection for real-time position tracking of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) in underwater settings are the main topics of this research article. For a variety of applications, including pipeline maintenance, environmental research, and undersea infrastructure inspection, effective monitoring and control of ROVs is essential. Due to signal attenuation and interference, conventional communication techniques are difficult to use in aquatic environments. To get over these restrictions, hydro-optical communication, which sends light messages through water, presents a viable option. The paper examines current hydro-optical communication methods and technology, pointing out their benefits and drawbacks. It deals with the technical needs of setting up a trustworthy communication channel for monitoring the real-time location of ROVs. To ensure accurate and timely data delivery, an appropriate communication protocol is created. The research also demonstrates the smooth operation of hydro-optical communication with the ROV's navigation system. The suggested method is put into practise and tested in safe underwater environments in order to assess how well it works at pinpointing the position of ROVs. Among the performance indicators evaluated are data rate, communication range, and energy efficiency. The results of this study help to advance the area of underwater communication and make it easier to monitor and manage ROVs in real-time for a variety of underwater applications.
