Underwater glider

From Communauté de la Fabrique des Mobilites

Short Description: low cost and versatile underwater glider capable of extended missions of up to weeks at a time

Description: This glider is open-source, with 3D printed components combined with readily available hardware, allowing it to be assembled for a low cost. Given the openness of the project, the project could be forked to produce alternative designs suited to particular scenarios. For instance; changing the tubing to aluminium to become a deep sea glider; using a unique sensor array for specialised applications; changing the buoyancy engine size to increase speed.In creating this project I aimed to produce a low cost and versatile underwater glider capable of extended missions of up to weeks at a time. I hope that by having this platform available, it would reduce the cost of underwater projects for all, from hobbyists, amateur scientists to seafood farmers.
