I am building an ROV for my graded unit at college.
The specs/features I would like on the ROV are;
Raspberry Pi Noir infra red control camera to surface
Dazzne P3 HD action cam
3 Rule bilge pumps with props
Laptop displaying video feed from Pi Noir
Homemade lithium ion battery pack
Adafruit 3 axis accelerometer
110mm soil pipe with screw in cap for electrical items
Relay system for controlling
Laptop running the PI through SSH
I started this project years ago, but didn,t understand much about electricity so it went in the loft. Now i,m studying a degree in electrical engineering and I would like to finish this as my project. The ROV will be used to explore flooded mine workings, this will be used for my hobby (mine exploring).
I have lots of questions to ask, mainly regarding the drive system.
The Pi NOir has its own IR lights built in, I was thinking of also fitting a seperate IR light from a security light to provide additional light whilst underground, would this help visibility?
Thats all the questions I have… for now
Any info greatly appreciated!
