As the day that the competition rules are posted draws near, the computing division is currently focused on training and practicing through example projects. In particular, we have members practicing with the object recognition, navigation and autonomous movement capabilities of ArduSub (the ROV control software we use) via OpenCV, QGroundControl and Pymavlink respectively. We also have two exciting division-wide projects that we are looking into. The first involves simulating GPS coordinates with ArduSub, which is a critical step toward making our ROVs capable of handling sonar. The second project’s goal is to come up with a sonar alternative for tracking our ROV’s position during the MATE competition. All in all, this has been an important and fun month for the division!
