Trident/ OpenROV HD Pro camera


#1

I’m a current owner of a OpenROV 2.8 build and a soon to be owner of a Trident ROV. I have been interested in the HD Pro Camera upgrade for the OpenROV 2.8 but it has been unavailable for some time now. While I wait for my Trident I would like to complete the upgrade of my 2.8 to the new camera.

On the forums I have seen the added functionality that was provided for the HD Pro camera upgrade but unfortunately the same developments for the standard camera have been rather stagnated.

Can you share the model of the camera that you are using for the 2.8 and the Trident and a possible third party source of the USB module?

I can make the required PCB to house the new camera in my mini-mill that I use to make PCBs so I only need the camera module.

From what I can find online it seems that the Pro upgrade camera is the same camera used in the Amazon Web Services “Deeplens” AI developers kit which uses a GEO Semiconductor imager with H.264 builtin compression. Looking at the different imagers available at GEO it looks like the GC6500 may be the underlying imager that is being used.

Can you elaborate on what camera is being used in the hopes that I and others can obtain the camera from another source since the OpenROV store seems to not stock the camera any longer?

Has anyone successfully used theBlueROV Low Light HD Camera in the OpenROV 2.8 or earlier?

If so, what was involved besides the required physical modifications to mount the camera? Additional drivers?

Thanks!
