PIRatE Lab's curator insight, January 26, 1:37 PM

We are now experimenting with these ROVs in the context of both undergraduate education and coastal research/monitoring here at CSU Channel Islands.

 

The neat things here are the cheapness of the instrument and the open framework approach.  Our next phase will involve building manipulator arms, etc. with 3D printers.  Following along the open source nature of the project, we will eventually be posting/sharing all our designs/innovations.  Both technical and pedagogical.
