OpenROV fully assembled.
I know this problem can be solved. I just haven’t figured it out yet, and I need help from the OpenROV community to do so.
Update: The OpenROV community delivered. Solution: ESC Programming and Calibration for OpenROV.
Parts That Work
Software image updates on the Beaglebone Black work flawlessly thanks to scripts written by Brian Adams and Dominick Fretz. The cockpit software shows a real-time image from the camera, the LED lights are super-bright, and the lasers hold steady at 10cm apart. My fully assembled OpenROV passes the water submersion test. Yes, it’s waterproof, thanks to O-rings and silicon-based lubricant!
What about the motors? The motors work, almost. Could it be the
electronic speed control (ESC) settings, calibration, or less than
perfect soldering? That’s where I need help.
