Re: MATE ROV Competition Forum Board Rulings

For the photomosaic task (EXPLORER), any manipulation of the images would be considered manual creating the photomosaic. Pilots may maneuver their vehicle to any location to take the photo, but cannot manipulate the image beyond that. Companies may not crop photos taken, designate/outline portions o...

Re: [EXPLORER] Coral Reef

A track bar / slider bar to calibrate colors once in the pool is acceptable.

Good luck.

Re: Does MicroROV require thruster guards?

No. The micro-ROV does not require thruster guards. However, you could choose to put guards/warnings around your micro-ROV thrusters if they are very power and could cause injury.

If it is using pneumatic power, (not electrical), it would follow the fluid power rules. Matthew Gardner MAT...
