Today’s letter is U for Underwater Open-Source Robot!

The most well-known example of an Underwater Open-Source Robot is the OpenROV.

WikipediaOpenROV (open-source remotely operated vehicle) is a low-cost telerobotic submarine/underwater drone built with the goal of making underwater exploration and education affordable.[1][3][7]

It weighs ~2.6 kg and has dimensions 15 cm x 20 cm x 30 cm.[5][6] This submarine is powered by 26650 Li-Ion batteries and can be assembled from common materials, with the most expensive piece being the BeagleBone Black Linux computer (~$89). The submarine is controlled from a laptop computer connected to the submarine via a tether and is equipped with on-board LEDs and a camera.[1] OpenROV is an open-source hardware project. By providing the list of the submarine parts and instructions on how to assemble them, the developers aim to democratize underwater exploration.[4]
