Well it is Saturday, with exactly on week till we go into the pool. The prototype has been completed, worked for awhile, and now I can hardly program it, let alone get it to function. So I have purchased some spray on conformal coating to slow down the corrossion from the water. Now it is time for maqss production. Three Mini-ROVs, plus spare parts.
I have decided to more to a bigger, more powerul motor, a Mabuchi, that is also rated for 12V. That should help these little babies swim along! Still need to write the software for both the Mini-ROV and dockside microcontrollers, since the prototype did not function so well. And the gripper.
So, no time for blogging, its back to work!
