A friend of mine started a ROV project and asked me for help with the "brain" of the ROV.
This ROV will be controlled using 2 joysticks and an Arduino UNO board at the surface.
It will have a GUI displayed on a LCD screen, and we would like to get those datas from the ROV:
Compass heading, Attitude, Depth, battery monitoring
The control box will be tethered to the ROV using arduino's board serial ports.
I was thinking first of using an APM for that, but it might be overkill and I decided to go for an Arduino Mega, on which I'll plug:
Compass shield, Accelerometer and Gyros shield.
My question is, what would be the best choice?
Would it be good enough if I choose:
Or something like that would be good enough? http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/1268
Thanks for your advices
Have a great day
