I have been looking for information but I have not seen a clear guide,
I need a connection from above, out of the water, to the ROV. I only want a Serial connection, from outside a computer or arduino to the ROV with arduino, the idea is to have a Serial communication to send data and receive, I only want to send data, I don’t need video.
I have been reading that you use FATHOM but some concepts are not clear to me,
- What combination will I need???
I understand that above I would need FXTI , it has a connection for Binder 770 and a USB output that I could connect to the USB of my laptop and read through the arduino IDE serial the data that comes to me from the ROV’s arduino.
In the ROV part, I would need another Fathom X board and from there connect to the Arduino serial port to have communication with the surface. Correct me if I’m wrong.
- What cable should I use if I only need to send data and receive, would the thin cable work for me? Fathom Slim ROV Tether (by the meter)
- What connections should I make from FathomX to the ROV’s Arduino Mega to make the Serial connection?
