The Raspberry Pi powered ROV

The Raspberry Pi powered ROV

The ROV brought by Elektra which we covered yesterday wasn’t the only underwater vehicle at the Maker Faire in Trondheim today. As well as their Arduino-powered vehicle, Tim Jagenberg and his son brought along their Raspberry Pi powered ROV.

…based on a plumbing tube used for the housing and submersible electric pumps as motors. A Raspberry Pi with Camera Module will deliver the live video feed via ethernet cable. The remote control is managed via a serial link to a Teensy 3.1 with sensors and motor controllers. The communication will be implemented using MAVLink, which enables the use of the QGroundControl station. — Tim Jagenberg
