I’ve designed a TMS to manage the tether of my ardusub ROV because I want to use this ROV as a fly-out vehicle to inspect inside shipwrecks or other underwater structures where large ROVs cannot access. The Tether Management System basically pays in or out the ROV tether as required by the operator. It has cameras, lights and a system to latch or release the ROV.
The heart of the TMS is the same as for the Rov’s : a Pixhawk and raspberry (from Bluerobotics). There are 2 computers with QgroundControl : one for the ROV and the other for the TMS.
I’m using a FO switch to send both ROV and TMS ethernet signals.
I have the current IP addresses 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.2.2 for the ROV.
I’ve changed the IP addresses of the TMS to 192.168.2.5 and 192.168.2.6.
It’s working well for the video streams, but the telemetries are mixed together and both Qgroundcontrol softs are lost…
Can someone help me with this problem?
