Autonomus Missions

Hi,
I’ve worked on a manual underwater system for two years. Now, I want a bit of a challenge. Basically I planned an example on my mind:
There is a circle in the water and the vehicle detects it and goes through inside.

How can I do image recognition on an autopilot? Can I combine my codes with Ardusub?

If you show me a starting point to research I would be very pleased
Thanks.

Hi,

It’s a bit challenge but possible. First you need to take a look in OpenCV, we have some examples here of how to access the video output of the ROV.

Now with the image processing working, you can control the ROV with PyMavlink, we have some great examples here that explain how to control and extract information of the ROV.
