Self balancing / Auto-pilot


#1

Has anyone experimented with using a servo connected to the stabiliser and some sort of ultrasonic transducer (or other form of depth measurement) to keep the foil at a consistent depth?


#2

I dont think anyone has, but this RC version is working pretty well!


#3

Very cool! It would be interesting to know if they used ultrasonic transducers.

It would be especially interesting to understand how well ultrasonic transducers work on the water surface (smooth, choppy, wavy, etc). Does anyone know?

This is super awesome. Do you know who built it? Are they on this forum?


#5

It would be amazing to find out about the mechanics and the code for this!

The University of Florida built it.
