From the great Beaglepilot (APM running under Linux on a BeagleBone Black board) team, a tempting glimpse of something cool. APM:Submarine

Navigation - navigation, this is the captain, anybody know where we are?

Sorry captain, the GPS seems to be malfunctioning!

Yeah I know you guys have already thought of that, but still.

Great capability, I live on the coast, might be worth a shot.

Best regards,

The APMsubmarine Project has already been mentioned on the ArduBoat User Group on the Wired Comms for ArduRover Discussion and I think that I might start a separate discussion for that Project, incase it does not get completed, maybe other members can take up the challenge.

Would love to see this project continued to completion!

Thanks Chris for bringing this up. Regardless of whether the project goals are achieved or not, the student's work should be a good contribution to anyone that desires to create a submarine powered by APM.

Will you be able to pick it from the list of support devises when installing software? Like rover, quad, plane and then submarine or will it be a custom upload. I have two subs I would love to put apm in.

Coms will be a real challenge.

telemetry and video feed would be required very after success of APM Sub and a tethered approach wont be much appealing.
