Hi BlueRobotics Team and User Community,
We’re re-deploying our custom BlueROV2 to the bottom of the Monterey Bay (900m deep!) for our Ocean Discovery program. This time around, we really wanted to figure out the Tele-operations piece so we can distribute the connection to students around the world. We have successfully figured it all out except for one little bug. The video seems to have a compression bug that we can’t figure out. I have included a video link below that shows our issue. The same bug does not happen when we are directly/locally connected to the ROV. We’re hoping that someone here can offer some suggestions.
The way we are connecting is through setting up a VPN using ZeroTier. We’ve successfully used ZT for land based robots that also utilized a Raspberry Pi but have always used web sockets for the video and not UDP. UDP should prove to be much better if we can figure out this video issue.
Is there some settings we should try to adjust? We’re open to all suggestions!
