Maybe also OpenRov could be used to take closeup of "dangerous" fishes like this guy did to take pictures of lions
Any OpenROVist going to London Oceanology international next week ?
It will be a good oportunity to meet together.

Brian Adams recently got some code working with OpenROV that allows plugins to be added to the system very easily. This means that if you have an idea for something particular you'd like the ROV to do, you can just write a small block…Continue

They have the same numbers as the one that Walt Holm tore down earlier.
I think I received the older V1s in a…Continue
