BlueROV2 Control Matlab Simulink

Hello everyone,

I’m working on a project to test some control strategies on the BlueROV2. As a first step, I’d like to program a BlueROV2 simulator in Matlab/Simulink. However, I am having some trouble with the thruster allocation in the model, particularly, with the pitch and roll rotations.

Do you know some thesis/paper/project where BlueROV2 hydrodynamic parameters were obtained? I believe my problem can be solved if I consider those degrees of freedom as stable from design, but I am not really sure of that.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @JosueGlz,

This is probably what you are looking for: https://flex.flinders.edu.au/file/27aa0064-9de2-441c-8a17-655405d5fc2e/1/ThesisWu2018.pdf

Thank you, Patrick. I will take a look at this. I have the BlueROV2 with six-thrusters configuration, but I assume that its hydrodynamics will be similar.
