I Wan Using Ez-Board For My Robot Fish But I Dont Know Using What For Connectivi


This is my robot fish, i think more easly using ez-board for programing but wifi or bluethoot cannot working in the water. I don't know how i can connect ez-board in the water to computer.

Eric, how many servos and sensors and thinga are on the fish? Maybe something like an Arduino on board, acting as a slave to an EZ-B on the surface connected by a 3 wire tether to one of the UARTs.

I know you are on a pretty tight budget, so an embedded computer is probably not an option, but maybe a cheap used Android phone running ARC Mobile. You could have ot be mostly autonomous, and just connect some fishing line to retrieve it if it goes out of control.

@Alan in the fish is 5servo and 1 motor dc gearbox. Maybe i will use a android for connect to ez-board. I must making more space safety box in the robofish body.

Thankyou Alan:)
Nice work Eric.... Another excellent build by you....:)
Thankyou @Richard R

But i have problem at controller it in a water. Hope in the future this robot cant use as tool for analysis the undet water ecosystem without scaring the real fish.:)
Wait a second! Eric this is your fish design? I thought it was just an example you found...I should have known from your previous designs how wrong I was.

Man, that's amazing! Great work!

I could potentially make a custom WiFi board for you Eric that has an external WiFi antenna connector so that you could allow you to have a bob style antenna that floats at the surface. Would this interest you?

Yes it my roboFish. it is good news for me @Jeremie thankyou, and greatfull I have won a grand Prize (the 30Watt epilog laser cutter) in Intructables.com . but the Prize it too much for me.. I don't know I can paying the costum taxs. :(

I sent you an email at your @thetechguru.net address.....

Okay @Alan Thankyou:)
Costum tax in Indonesia total 27.5% max 30% Of value ($12025) is expensive taxs
@EricEZ... I know it is easier said than done but you should consider starting your own business... Find a way to get money for a 3d printer and design software.... You could custom make robots for people... People would buy your robots/designs dude...:)
@Richard R
Yes i have starter for making robot for sale not only my design for real, i make a simple robot with frame using acrilyc for last 8 week ago, And I have to take a trip for 1 hour to get to the cutting laser shop for cutting acrilyc frame. And now i get a laser cutter. This my website www.diyroboticresearch.com but not get a many costumer yet. Thankyou
Congrats on winning the instructables contest Eric, that's awesome! I hope you can figure out a way to get the laser to you. It will be a very valuable tool to help you with your robot building.
Thankyou so much @Jerimie
hallo eric,

how to contact you? im in indonesia too, i would like to discuss some project, please info
hello Hanny,
I'm sorry I missed your message, im little buzzy this years. you can contact me via email ericdirgahayu@gmail.com or my nomber +6283818542413, thankyou
EricEZ, do you really want to put your personal phone number on a world wide public forum where anyone can see it and call you? That would chill me to the core if it as me. *eek*
hello @Dave , that is my bussines number , the phone number listed on my web bussines and anyone can see and contact me:)
I am highly interested in your fish design as I was thinking about doing this last summer, wondering if a much larger design could be made looking like a small shark. Or looking at some new Drone kits that are submarines I heard some company making them now. Would need to be able to use in Pacific Ocean area but starting out small with a fish first to see what kind of problems happen. With camera to see what may be below,possibly sonar, I always thought this would be impossible to make but submarine drones are real now!:D
