So how do you know when something is going wrong with your robot?
Step 1: You need instrumentation.
We have lots of sensors and instrumentation in OpenROV, but the raw data is just that, data. It needs to be interpreted to create information we can use.
Step 2: Interpet the data
After hundreds of hours of flying OpenROV, we have gotten a sense for when something is wrong with the ROV. But even though we know what to look for in the data, manually scanning a rapidly changing telemetry stream is hard.
Step 3: Have the robot do what robots do well, monitor the data.
In a tele-robotic system, it is asking a lot for a pilot to monitor a rapidly changing telemetry stream for data anomalies…Continue

It's been incredible to see all the awesome expeditions that people have been posting to OpenExplorer!
We're so excited to follow along with all of them as plans, people, and resources come together.
Here's a roundup of some I'm excited about:
