Hey folks, we’re at the end of stock for the current version of the IMU and Depth Sensor module. If you have already started your build or are thinking about starting your build please note that the sensor module in question can be attached to the designated auxiliary wires on your ROV after it is completed so there’s no need t wait.
Being at the end of stock also gives us a good opportunity to make a revision. The desire for making changes comes from both internal research and development here at OpenROV HQ and feedback from the community. A chief concern was that there is an issue that some of the IMU units have, which are discussed in detail on this thread:
We are also looking at ways to improve performance and increase the capabilities of the basic but essential upgrade. We are nearing the end of the development cycle and hope to have more information very soon on this thread. If you are interested in tracking the changes and hearing announcements about this please follow this thread, check back from time to time or email email@example.com to get on the wait list for the new unit.
