I would like to have support to develop a complete hydrographic application for the marine research.
First Module: Navigation
We will connect to pc Rs232 (serial data) from GPS, digital Gyro and other sensors with NMEA format string, plus sensors with binary string (multibeam, Side scan sonar and so on).
We will draw on this application Vessel and ROV shape and we will have a sort of navigation software to follow these objects (as a ground navigator but will more uitlities for marine jobs)
We will manage input NMEA string but we have to make NMEA string output to send to other devices or softwares onboard Vessels.
Another important utility is to have possibility to load a Geotiff image to see Geographical area where we are working.
Second Module : Underwater videocamera acquisition (Video Module)
We will install in a Desktop Computer a Video Card to acquire 3 BNC video input, then from navigation module we will send to Video Module positioning and we will see on Camera text file of GPS, Gyro and all sensors we would like to have as label on video.
More details will be communicate after...
