The BlueROV is an unassembled kit with frame, watertight enclosure, thrusters, and speed controllers. The electronics are up to you – open source software is available. Hardware/software experience required. It uses six T200 Thrusters to provide six-degree-of-freedom control allowing you to point the ROV in any orientation to film anything, grab anything with a simple robot arm, and have a lot of fun!
