My name is Umer Irshad. I am a Senior at Tustin High School (CA), part of its 4-year engineering program called T-Tech Academy. For our Senior Engineering Project, we are repairing and reassembling an OpenRov 2.8. We are using the OpenROV as a model to build our own underwater rover that doesn’t need Ethernet Connection and can interface with Arduino Mega. We would use some of the replacement parts from the OpenROV like the motors and acrylic casing, but we want either a Playstation Controller or a Joystick that can control the motors with a tethering system. We also want a PVC-based frame for our rover. How would we go about designing and building this? Any ideas and feedback are appreciated.
