Guides I've Contributed To
Answer to: Why don't camara LED lights work?Hmmm... based on what you describe, I'd expect the lights to work. Can you send some photos of your setup to firstname.lastname@example.org? I'll see if anything seems out of the ordinary. Eric
Answer to: Can I use contact cement instead of acrylic?Hmm.... that's a tricky one. I don't think contact cement will work very well, but there may be some other options. Depending on regulations where you are, you may be able to get acrylic cement shipped to you from an online store.
Answer to: Acrylic pieces much different than guideSure is- you've got a newer v2.6 kit. You can find the instructions (still a little bit of a work in progress) here!
Answer to: How can I get the software for my notebookActually, all you need on your notebook is a modern web browser like Google Chrome! The ROV hosts a webserver so if you've uploaded the 2.5 software image to an SD card and put that in your Beaglebone, then you just need to plug the ROV into your computer and log into the ip address 192.168.254.1:8080 through Chrome. That's it! E
Answer to: How to Add-On External Sensor Packages (Depth)?Hey Eric, I like your answer to self! Sorry for taking so long to write back- I usually look for questions on the forms but haven't really been patrolling the Dozuki questions. Sooo... four of the six aux wires are for I2C devices: 3v3, GND, SCL, and SDA. With those, you should be able to connect the Depth/IMU sensor and still have two additional wires for *whatever*. I always picture the other two being used for external lights or something like that. As you may know, I2C devices are addressable, so even if you add other I2C sensors or interments to your ROV, you can tie them into the same bus of four wires. Since there are six AUX wires, you could also potentially hook up an SPI device. I'd love to see what you came up with-- would you mind posting some photos to the forums? E
