Hi guys, my first post here. I’ve been tasked with building an ROV to act as a camera platform for documenting reefs at 200m. I’ve never built an ROV before but have built all sorts of things. I’m confident I could build an ROV that would survive the depth. I could build one with switches to control props but I’d hate to build it then find out I need to be able to control the speed of the motors. I’m only starting to research this now but I’m assuming I’ll end up with a microcontroller and remote control joined via CAT 5 or something similar.
Am I way out of my depth here (excuse the pun) or do you think a newbie could achieve this. As of right now I know nothing about microcontrollers or writing code for these.
Any tips, advice or encouragement would be greatly appreciated or if you’ve built something similar I wouldn’t mind a few design tips.
