After a bit of a hiatus, the team has started work on the other half of our goals – the aquatic variety. These goals are laid out in more incremental steps, as electronics and water do not mix favorably!
We will be combining Arduino and Android to have an autonomous “ROV” that will travel to a dive site, submerge, take photographs of wildlife, surface and return. Given the rather substantial undertaking, our rather humble proof of concept is a frame mounted waterproof camera, lights, and bait. Behold, the madness begins!
