Inspired by the original OpenRov, using a mixture of COTS1 parts, and 3D printed components, I am designing a small Class I, Observation ROV2.

I am going to be using a Raspberry Pi, an Arduino, and RC components to build up the onboard control system. the data will be sent back to the control PC via ethernet.

Code and Project files can be found in my GitHub Repo:

  1. Common of the Shelf
  2. These vehicles are small vehicles fitted with camera(s) and lights. They are primarily intended for pure observation, although they may be able to handle one additional sensor or a small actuator.
