OpenROV Interest Group in VA?


#1

Greetings enthusiasts!

I am moving to Hampton VA and am wondering if there is an OpenROV group established at the mouth of the great Chesapeake? If not, I am interested in starting and interest group when I get out there and have a number of projects that we should dive into. If your in the area (Hamtpon VA) or would like to help oput remotely, give me a shout. I'll add you to the list and get things started in August once I get settled in beautiful coastal VA.

Projects:

1. OpenAUV

2. Archeological Camera (using Tom Mahlzbenders' PTMs and camera rig design)

3. Pressure Chamber (I handed off this project to Eric and some friends in Pleasanton, CA, but I will need one in VA)

4. Software:

a. AUV

b. Payloads (CTD, Water Sampler, vision processing...)

5. Exploration of the Chesapeake!!
