Raspberry Pi underwater drone project

Raspberry Pi underwater drone

A new advanced Raspberry Pi project has been published to the Hackster.io website this week detailing how to build your very own underwater drone using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B mini PC, Pi camera module and SparkFun Triple Axis Accelerometer and Gyro Breakout – MPU-6050.

Levgenii Tkachenko explains more about the inspiration behind the awesome Raspberry Pi underwater drone. “I’ve watched a lot of programs about inventors on Discovery channel and once I decided to do something interesting by myself, so that it could be really impressive and difficult at a time: some electric motors, controllers, handling, camera. After buying a lot of useful (and not very useful) stuff, I began to think what kind of project should I start. Finally I came to the conclusion that there are a lot of flying and driving drones, but it’s not about underwater drones (ha ha, but as I understand now, I was terribly wrong then).”
