ArcheoROV, an Open Hardware ROV specifically designed for archaeological aims
ArcheoFOSS 2016 is concluded. I will soon post a report about my impressions regarding the conference, but today I start with the less funny work of uploading the presentations we gave during the event.
The first project we presented regarded the "ArcheoROV, an Open Hardware ROV specifically designed for archaeological aims" and describes the Remotely Operated underwater Vehicle we developed in partnership with the Witlab of Rovereto (TN - Italy).
Here below is the link to the original presentation, for the reader who wants to see it directly online:
For those who prefer to see it on youtube, I just uploaded it on our channel:
For a better explanation of each slide, I report here below a short abstract:

ArcheoROV is designed to satisfy specific needs of underwater archaeology
Since 2006 Arc-Team works on "archeorobotics" in order to solve specific archaeological problems. The research branch was started after an aerial archaeological project in Armenia.
After two years of research, a first prototype of Open Hardware UAV (project UAVP) was ready to work.

The Open Hardware 3D printer Fa)(a3D in action (printing the cast of an Homo georgicus from Dmanisi and a metal ring digitally recovered from the body of a Ptolemaic mummy).

ArcheoROV's first target: exploration.
ArcheoROV's first target: safety.
ArcheoROV's first target: extreme missions.
