Have you ever wanted to do underwater image analysis and research, but suffered from the high cost of underwater robots? Or after purchasing, you were troubled by the expense of writing programs to read the images?
The IPANEMA STEM ROV kit with HORUS waterproof camera provides a complete and simple underwater image analysis solution, suitable for university topics or graduate research projects.
On October 25, 2021, the School of Engineering of National Sun Yat-sen University recently held an annual joint thematic competition (news link). In this competition, both the Naval Academy and the Department of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering of Sun Yat-Sen University adopted the The IPANEMA STEM ROV kit with HORUS waterproof camera solution, and both won awards in this joint thematic competition!!!
The theme of the Naval Academy’s exhibition is A preliminary Study of Fish Image Enhancement Using Remotely Operated Undrewater Vehcile. It uses IPANEMA STEM ROV kit with HORUS waterproof camera to collect underwater real-time images, and uses OpenCV for analysis and image discrimination.
The theme of the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering, National Sun Yat-sen University is 3D image reconstruction unde rwater by ROV.
In addition to the IPANEMA STEM ROV kit and HORUS waterproof camera, it is also used with IMU and MATLAB to control the ROV posture.The underwater optical data is collected through the HORUS waterproof camera, which trains the AI model of the YOLOv3 neural network architecture to identify the types of underwater objects.
