We are currently working on design for a drop cam system, that will be hand held by a diver or hard mounted to provide a live video feed to the surface for a project.
Plan is to use the BR housing, tether, HD low light cam, Pi, Fathom-X to handle the core components and transmission to the surface.
Since this is not a full ROV we won’t be using a Pixhawk or QGroundControl.
Was thinking of using one of the various Pi security cam images as a starting point to handle the video portion.
Ideally we would have ability to transmit the live feed to a single computer or broadcast as well on an internal LAN or possibly over Internet as well, with viewing via a browser. Also would like capability to record the feed as well.
Figured I’d reach out to the folks here to see if anyone has already done something similar that could provide some feedback or suggestions on software or related elements so we don;t reinvent the wheel.
Any thoughts/feedback would be appreciated.
We will also share our project here as it moves along as well.
