We just finalised the assembly and preliminary testing of the bluerov2 quite successfully I’d say.
Really excellent quality.
As we are trying to convert it to an AUV, we need (among others…) some changes in the IP addressing of the Raspberry.
Currently we connect to the bluerov2 as follows:
The Fathom-X Ethernet interface is connected to a WLAN AP (Access Point).
The notebook PC we use is connected to this AP
(AP IPaddr: 192.168.2.245, PC WLAN IP addr: 192.168.2.1, bluerov IP addr: 192.168.2.2)
The PC has also an Ethernet interface with IP addr 10.1.1.X , and this is an Internet Shared Connection. The problem is that through this configuration I cannot do “sudo apt-get update” etc. I suppose that I need to configure Raspberry’s eth0 to have 192.168.2.1 as Gateway? What is the appropriate way to configure this without harming the operation of QGC etc.?
Also, in both the standard direct Ethernet connection and the connection through WLAN AP, the video streaming quality is not good. Too much artifacts (pixelation) when for example I move my hand in fornt of the camera. Is there a way to avoid this?
(It may be my PC video codec or CPU speed?)
I’m stopping here for now – there may be a lot additional questions in the pipeline
