Calling deep sea explorers: Engineering interns and educators needed for ROV operations this summer!



The Ocean Exploration Trust is looking for a fresh team of engineering interns and science communication fellows for their upcoming season 2015. The Trust and their ship the E/V Nautilus will be mapping and exploring new portions of the seafloor this year all while broadcasting the entire operation live.  Led by legendary explorer, Dr. Robert Ballard, the team has an exciting season planned in the Gulf of Mexico and Eastern Pacific.

OET's mission is to advance ROV and telepresence technology to explore unknown parts of the seafloor, conducting the highest level research and inspiring the next generation of explorers to pursue…

Quick Dev Call Tomorrow?

Hey all!

We've previously done "Developers Calls" on Google Hangouts from time to time for people working on OpenROV (and other ROV projects) to keep in touch and share ideas.

It's been quite a while since our last one, but we'd like to get this going again.  To start out, we were planning to set up a small, "kick off Dev Call" tomorrow, Monday the 15th at 2pm PST to get re-oriented with hosting the call and to hear what people would like to talk about.

Obviously this is very short notice, but if you'd be interested in participating, please send me an email at eric@openrov.com, and I'll add you to the hangout list.

Of course, more of these hangouts will be coming soon, so if you can't make it to our call tomorrow, stay tuned for our next one!

My OpenROV week in review AKA Kids are AWESOME!

It was so awesome getting to meet kids from Summit Academy and introduce them to my OpenROV, and take them on an engaging underwater adventure to meet the Tox-Ick monster (a stormwater outfall) that lurks beneath the waters of Puget Sound and help me survey for Sea Stars!

Just to begin

I suppose it is time for me to begin adding words to this blog, I recieved my open ROV just a few days ago, and although I am an electrical engineer by trade. I am delighted and suprised how much thought has actually gone into this product and how simple it is to build.

in three days I have moved from a beautiful (only an engineer could call a box of bits beautiful)to an almost completed poject.

I was sceptical at the claimes that this could be built in a weekend, however f you have everything to hand i dont see why not.

so...... i sit here typing this blog waiting for some glue to set on my battery tubes so almost done all bar the shouting.

I have high hopes for this little unit, and still have to think of a name for it, but in the coming months I plan to put him to work and have him pushed to his limits in the North Sea (gulp). but i beleive that he is up to the job.

well that glue is dry so need to get on will update my progress as I remember to come here… Continue
