we are doing some work on 4 thrusters ROV, and we bough a 2.8ROV kit for starters to get to know the part and etc…
so i would like to know if i would be able to actually develop a 4 thrusters ROV with the kit (purchasing extra motor of course and developing a control board suitable for it) also new body frame
then it come to most challenging part for us (programming the ROV), since this project is opensource and code are available on github we are thinking to add extra control on the 4th thruster by tweaking the code a bit…
can anyone show me the best way to approach this task? my questions are:
- do i need to tweak beaglebone code as well or only arduino control board?
- which file are used for control purpose? i open pilot and motor cpp file but dont know if its the right one…
- anything i need to know before proceeds with the hardware/software work?
i see that the board is using a shunt current monitor, i believe it is for motor speed control right?
Reply are much welcome, would appreciate any ideas/ comment
