4-thruster vectored motion


(Richard) #1

I want to make a floating box with vectored thrust from 4 thrusters for holding a GPS position. My ROV will descend down from the box. I don’t want to use “plug and play” hardware, I just want to program everything in Arduino C using an Uno. How complex would the programming be to hold GPS position using vectored thrust? I have so-so programming skills.

Thanks,

Richard

Richard,

The programming part of this is relatively straightforward since you’ve already got experience with control loops. The harder part is the math to convert the GPS coordinates into a positional error to feed into that control loop, but I’m confident you could handle it. There are lots of resources online for those types of calculations.
