The 2015 application did not make the cut this year. Thanks for everyone that helped. We will take the feedback and role it in to an application for 2016.
One of the nice things about being Open Source is that we get to participate in programs such as Google’s summer of code.
- What is Google Summer of Code?
Google Summer of Code is a program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects. We work with many open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund projects over a three month period. Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together over 8,500 successful student participants from over countries and over 8,000 mentors from 109 countries worldwide to produce over 55 million lines of code. The program, which kicked off in 2005, is now in its eleventh year. If you are feeling nostalgic or are interested in learning more about the projects we have worked with in the past, check out the 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 program pages.
The applications to mentor programmers for the summer open up Feb 9th. We have an crazy cool platform to develop on. If anyone has ideas on OpenROV related software projects that might be worth exploring. This is the place to discuss!
Current list of proposed projects:
Formal project propsals should be in the following format:
When adding an idea to this section, please try to include the following data:
if the application is not widely known, a description of what it does and where its code lives
a brief explanation
the expected results
pre-requisites for working on your project
if applicable, links to more information or discussions
mailing list or IRC channel for your application/library/module
your name and email address for contact (if you’re willing to be a mentor)
If you are not a developer but have a good idea for a proposal, get in contact with relevant developers first.
Some big ideas to seed the discussion with:
- [3D vision] use the camera images to build 3d models of structures undewater.
- [Telerobotics] Tune WebRTC to deliver sub 100ms video lag from the ARM based beaglebone to the browser.
- [HTML5 Audio] Use AI classification to train a central database of sounds based on a cheap underwater Hydrophone to do automatic sound classification on underwater contacts.
Some practical ideas to seed the discussion with:
- [HTML5 Web Components] Publish an specification for creating themes using HTML5 web components.
- [Robotic Data Capture Plugin] A plugin that captures video and telemetry separately and bundles it to the web for replay and sharing.
Go ahead and add your propsal for projects as a reply in this topic and I will move them up to this post as the final list
