Hello - I was wondering if there was anyone out there who’s taken something like the Lawrance StructureScan 3D system (or Garmin/Hummingbird equivalent) and integrated it directly with an AUV system.
For $700 (reconditioned) - I could see a system like this being a super useful tool for navigation, imaging, bathymetry etc.
Problems I see:
- the transducers not being pressure rated.
- proprietary data output, and no SDKs / APIs for integration and easy manipulation of the system.
- data quality could be all over the place
However - taking a look at the processed output on the screen they provide - it looks like you’re getting a super interesting set of information.
Has anyone tried to make this work? Does anyone else know anyone that’s cracked the code here? Looking forward to seeing what people out there have done or think could work!
