So when I first came to TinyCLR.com, there was only the Mini and Domino. Now there are too many to chose from.
I have stated before, and will restate…
I am looking at building an Underwater ROV. I pretty much have the mechanics down, but I am looking at a controller system.
I need help in which one would best work for me. I am no computer wiz and I have no experience with micro controllers, thus why I am here, seems easy, FEZ!
Well my application will be:
Laptop - to control/monitor video
Power Source - 12 volt battery
Probably cat5 cable
Multiple DC motors ( need to be directional, forward/reverse and left and right and another set for up and down)
Possible leak detection (simple wet trip circuit)
Possible Pressure sensor
I have been thinking because the range could be greater then 500 feet on the tether, as previously suggested communication over RS232 with an RS485 converter.
So I ask the forum, what would be the Best (ok, cheapest) FEZ for this job and hardware?
