Hi my name is Martin and this site is about the world of underwater ROV’s (Remote operated vehicles)

I’ve been building ROV’s  for some time now, having dream’t about building one for years.

I debuted the first one I built at the Newcastle Maker Faire in March 2011 and shortly after presented it at the Scottish Ruby conference in Edinburgh. I’ve attended Mini Maker Faires all over the UK showing my original ROV and a couple of Micro one’s that kids could play with.

At the beginning of 2013 I decided to start to build an Open Source OpenROV and this site covers much of the build process and ongoing improvements. OpenROV has a great community and it’s well worth becoming a member.

  1. Hi Martin. It was great to meet you at Brighton yesterday. Thanks for coming all the way down, and thanks for all the valuable advice you gave.

    When you get a chance, can you email me (scotto18 at gmail dot com) with the results and details of the video screen you mentioned please? I’d also really like to see some output from your camera if possible.


    • Hi Scott,

      I’m having a couple of days break but will be home at the end of the week. I’ll send you the details then.
