I have just joined this site and have some questions which may sound stupid to some of you but I can't find answers on any of the other forums , so here are my questions:
Its possible all this is done from a laptop connected to the ROV via the twisted pair cable, if so how and are there links to how the systems functions and what may be done to add new functionality.
1: What controls the ROV from the land,supposing you are on the lake shore or sea shore, how do you control the direction, the pitch and the speed of the ROV?Also can one change the camera direction independently from the chassis direction?
2: How does one record what the camera sees, if I want to get a raw video feed from the ROV to make a video clip later , how do I get the feed for the dive? Is it on the on board SD card on Beagle Bone,thought this is used only to get the ROV to function? If not how do it get to control it via a computer and the program to use,Hint, computers are not my strong suit but I'm learning.
3: On one video I heard a comment that the ROV in Lake Tahoe could be controlled from Pittsburgh,through an IP connection I suppose but more details would be nice.
4: If I want to build my own kit,what do I need to cut the acrylic both dimensionally and hole through cuts?Are templates provided?
Thanking you in advance, James.
