Welcome to OpenROV!


Welcome to the OpenROV community site! We're glad you're here! We're getting a lot of new visitors and we thought it would be a good opportunity to introduce ourselves.

OpenROV is a DIY telerobotics community centered around underwater exploration and education. The community has developed a low-cost telerobotic submarine that can be built with mostly off-the-shelf parts. The goal of the project is to democratize exploration by allowing anyone to explore and study underwater environments. The OpenROV community is also laying the foundation for globally-connected citizen scientists to share their data and findings.

The site is a work in progress. We're updating the latest designs and working hard to get all the build information up as soon as possible. We appreciate the patience, and welcome any advice. I the meantime, you can learn more about the design and how you can help HERE.Check out more photos HERE.

A lot of people have asked if we're going to offering OpenROV kits. The answer is yes, we're working on the details right now and they should be available soon. If you want to be notified when they're available, please leave your contact info HERE.

Most importantly, we want to thank you for stopping by. This entire project is based on the strength of the community and we invite you, regardless of previous experience, to join us.

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to email us at info@openrov.com.
