Roamer ROV - RIT Senior Design Project
Deigned by: Dan Scoville, Jason Caulk, Josh Figler, Antoine Joly, Chris Nassar, Matt Paluch, Scott Gerenser, Larry Shaver
Machined by: Dan Scoville
Goal: Make a small ROV that can descend to at least 500ft to video shipwrecks
The light housings were finished. Each housing would have a 10 watt HID bulb and ballast put in it. These should be plenty bright for our needs. Also shown below is the 1st tilt camera design. The camera was put on a stepper motor so we could control its tilt while the ROV was underwater. This design was workable but the stepper motor was a bit too week for the weight of the camera.
Pool test 1
Some styrafoam was added for bouyancy and the ROV was ready for the 1st pool test in the RIT pool.
