Building an Arduino-powered underwater ROV

An ROV offers an entirely different way to use Arduino to explore a new world. This project is a bit different in two ways. First, there is quite a bit of mechanical work to do, and second, it is almost impossible to send wireless signals through water. So, you are going to use a tethered control line to give your robot direction.

Building an ROV

There are several possible approaches to building your ROV. Although controlled by a different processor, the mechanical design at is quite elegant, and you could certainly build the HW yourself and then integrate your Arduino. At is a simpler yet similar design that incorporates Arduino. Another design that is very different from the first one is available at Both could certainly use Arduino as the motor control.

My physical design is based more on the latter design that mostly uses plastic piping, as...
