I am initiating an ROV/AUV interest group here at Robot Garden. We have tools and a shop (soon to open). Please visit the website and look for the ROV/AUV wiki page for general information. Since we all are active people, I will announce a few targets for periodic development for the group. Goals are good to have and help move work forward. We have a few robotics events on the horizon, and I would like to get certain tasks completed prior, so that we can have a good time demonstrating our robotics and also developing novel solutions( as well as learning existing ones) for domains of our choice.
In any event, come on out and learn about robotics targeted for marine applications and / or share your knowledge and helping build interesting and novel ROVs and AUVs. Depending on turn out and interest, I will have the general interest group meetings every 2 weeks to start out.
