The TriggerFish ROV kit uses four bidirectional motor controllers and 2 joysticks for precision navigation. The ROV system is light and highly portable and includes a wide angle camera (170°) with high resolution 7” monitor. Although sensors (e.g. lights, temperature) and hydraulics tools are not included, they can easily be added to the ROV. The ROV system comes with a cigarette light adapter and can be powered off of most 12 volt supplies Read more.
The SeaMATE ROV controller is built around the Arduino computing platform. It is a two board set, one functioning as an Arduino Shield and the other providing motor control for four thrusters. Read more.
