I am starting an Underwater ROV team with my school next year. We already have a functioning ROV from 2 years ago, but now need to include a gripper arm to pick up objects. I have done some research and have found this to be the most affordable and practical solution.
I was going to purchase this gripper that has wrist control:
And follow this video to manipulate two servos on one joystick to control the opening/closing of fingers and the turning of the wrist:
Would I come into any problems? I know I’d have to purchase waterproof servos, and also waterproof the electronics/cables that lead to/from the ROV.
Any and all suggestions appreciated!
