New to OpenROV?
I enjoyed this youtube interview with Doug Webb, creator of the Slocum Glider. Everytime I see these things, I marvel at the ingenuity. Very cool.
An article in Engineering and Technology Magazine about how they're being deployed:
A fleet of 16 autonomous underwater gliders will be sent off to explore the world’s oceans as part of an ambitious research project by Rutgers University researchers.
Part of the Challenger Glider Mission Project, the underwater drones, each 2.2 metres long, will cruise the oceans at a rather modest speed of 35 km per day gathering data about the current state of the oceans.
Moving forward following a tooth-shaped gliding…

I started a blog post about how to do this but here is a video showing the setup and associated problems. It would be great to have audio coming in from the ROV with super low lag if someone knows more about this!
Finally made some time to get started assembling my OpenROV v2.6 kit. Didn't find any fit issues after doing the initial dry fit so proceeded to glueing up the frame. Water thin methylene chloride is a bit of a pain to work with as it flows everywhere (as you would expect) but makes up for it by getting into all the seams so easily. I will be posting all photos to flickr
