FishPi: Automated Trans-Oceanic Boat Controlled by a Raspberry Pi

Greg Holloway is designing an unmanned boat that will travel across the Atlantic ocean.

Massive 25 foot waves, 60mph winds, torrential rain, lightning, and the Kraken.  None of those things should be put anywhere near a Raspberry Pi. On the Atlantic Ocean all of those are commonplace, and that is exactly where I’m sending my Raspberry Pi.  The project is called FishPi, and the aim is to develop an Autonomous Marine Surface Vehicle, and have it cross the Atlantic Ocean.

Greg will be taking FishPi to the Nottingham Hackspace Raspberry Jam on Tuesday the 3rd of July.  This would be a good time to learn more, ask questions, or make suggestions…if you happen to be in the area.

  1. Similar concept to the Scout transatlantic idea that some boys started last year, but they’re using arduino instead of raspberry pi and seem quite a bit farther ahead- http://www.gotransat.com
