I’m working on a project and would like to find the best way to keep track of my ROV’s position underwater. I’ve read through a handful of the threads here and noticed this is a very common problem people have tried to tackle.
Personally, I am trying to get some hard numbers on home much the measurements of the OROV IMU drift over time and how accurate it can be.
I also wanted to know if there are any other reasonable approaches or products to tracking the ROV’s position. Are there better IMU products approximately in the same price range or entirely better systems? I know acoustics and lasers are methods used to locate ROV’s and transmit data, but they don’t seem to very accessible outside the professional world just yet.
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
