CAD and Electronics – Week 2

This week we came up with our first draft for our CAD design.

This is shown above. We have 4 holes made for vertical fan slots allowing the ROV to move up and down. It then has 4 horizontal thrusters allowing the ROV to move forwards, backwards and turn.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               We also researched the following:

  • Communication method between the ROV and the controller
  • Which sensors we can use on the ROV
  • Ways to attach/remove the ROV and detection of a problem
  • The behaviour of propellers in water and he necessary gearing to accompany it.

We have also made a list for parts to buy to build a small prototype to prove feasibility. This will allow us to prove that our design works without the need for a large budget.
