Coral Reef Mapping Robot, “Delta Force”

Our #Coral #Reef #Mapping #Robot effort intensifies! Our latest prototype did really well! Huge thanks to the volunteers who came and the advice given to us in the comments on social media – it really helped!

Observations

Negative

  1. Hard to deploy, so large
  2. Head too heavy, more buoyancy required at the front, especially if we add more battery
  3. Fin can be smaller
  4. one engine is too high (bubbling)
  5. Next time, we measure voltage before and after and perhaps try to estimate the autonomy
  6. Branding, stickers!
  7. Earlier, so we’re not rushed by the sunset
  8. Mosquito spray, swim attire, 🍹

Positive

  1. More stable, faster, maneuverable
  2. Thrusters are awesome
  3. Easier to drive
  4. Tight U-turn, 360
  5. Pack quite small
