OpenROV 2.8 software tips for arduino


Hi, I am currently student from singapore that is trying to setup a control system for an autonomous controlled openROV 2.8. I am very new to this system and do not have a strong programming foundation so please pardon me for my lack of knowledge.

  1. Is it possible for openrov 2.8 to be fully autonomous (i.e: following an object)
  2. Can I use MATLAB or arduino to program the openrov system?
  3. Does anybody have a pre-existing API which I can reference my project to?

Thank you in advance for any help and advice that the community can provide. Please help this poor student out
