Node.js Under Water by Ray Hightower
OpenROV is an underwater robot running Linux and Node.js. While larger Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) cost millions of dollars, the makers of OpenROV want to make underwater exploration more accessible; their unit costs less than a laptop. You may recall that a similar technology pattern played out in the shift from multi-million dollar mainframes to inexpensive PCs.
This talk will describe the internal workings of OpenROV, possible uses, and potential future. The Internet of Things (IoT) is happening now.
Ray Hightower is a software developer, founder of WisdomGroup, organizer of ChicagoRuby, and producer of WindyCityRails & RubyCaribe. More articles about OpenROV and other random topics can be found at RayHightower.com.
