About Me:

I'm an aerospace control systems engineer by education and spent a few years working on a large-scale gas-powered multicopter. I've recently shifted to marine robotics and started a company to provide enabling component for marine robotics. www.bluerobotics.com


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I've built quite a few multicopters over the years. I'm interested in anything that is unmanned.

"@RMAviation - Fantastic, that's great to hear. We are working on a gripper manipulator for the ROV. We actually sponsored two senior design teams at UC Davis working on that this last spring and they came up with some excellent designs. That's in…"

"Thanks everyone! It's great to hear your feedback.
@Chris Jackson - Yes, there is a video in the post. We don't have any more extended videos online right now but we'll be releasing some in the next few weeks. The ROV is driven via QGroundControl…"

We're really excited to announce a new ArduSub/Pixhawk controlled underwater underwater vehicle, the BlueROV2. The 6-thruster vectored configuration, coupled with strong static stability, provides a vehicle that is smooth and stable, yet highly…

Rustom Jehangir commented on Randy Sonnicksen's blog post Multi-Rotor Scalability
"Randy - Nice analysis. I wrote an a paper a few years ago about a control system for large multicopter. One of the most interesting issues is the scalability of the differential torque yaw method used on multicopters and how its effect diminishes to…"

"This looks fantastic! Very nice and I think a very reasonable price for such a hull.

Rustom Jehangir commented on Chris Anderson's blog post ArduSub, the underwater version of ArduPilot, now live
"@Fnoop - That could work but there would definitely be a big lag between ROV movement and GPS movement and the tether would have to stay fairly tight."

Rustom Jehangir commented on Chris Anderson's blog post ArduSub, the underwater version of ArduPilot, now live
"@Fnoop - The code is all there to do that since this is based on Copter. The issue is that GPS doesn't work underwater and it's pretty tough to get good position feedback. If we can integrate a good way to do that (USBL, DVL, imaging sonar +…"

"Kevin, if you do decide to steer the thrusters, there's a great thread about 3d printed parts to do so on our forums: https://www.bluerobotics.com/forums/topic/azimuth-mount-for-the-t10...
I think you'll have plenty of power and control authority…"

"@Hugues - One of the biggest additions to ArduSub so far is a 6-degree-of-freedom motor library that allows motors to have contributions to roll, pitch, yaw, up/down, and forward/backward, left/right, which are not included in the Copter code. I…"
