- Transform any flotation platform into an Autonomous Surface Vessel (ASV)
- This kit includes the necessary electronics, propulsion system, and software to convert a foam based surfboard, bodyboard, or stand up paddleboard into an AMOS Autonomous Surface Vessel
- Please note that the surfboard pictured is not included in the kit
The AMOS Board Kitis an affordable system for transforming any floatation platform into an Autonomous Surface Vessel (ASV). It is an ideal system for water sampling or surveying in shallow water with abundant vegetation, as it utilizes an aerial drone propeller for propulsion, allowing the boat to glide over any vegetation or obstructions beneath the surface of the water. The AMOS Board Kit comes with two water tight enclosures that are interlinked for data and power communication. The front box contains a visual camera in a water tight housing that can be used for taking pictures or videos, a wireless communication module, a temperature sensor, a four channel sixteen bit analog to digital converter, a real time clock, a GPS/RTK receiver board, an inertial module (AMOS IMU includes triaxial accelerometers, magnetometers, and gyroscopes) for orientation sensing, and a Raspberry Pi 3B+ computer for coordinating navigation, video, communication, and power monitoring. The back box includes a solar charge controller and cables for a twelve volt one hundred watt solar panel, a Lithium Iron Phosphate twelve volt, ten Amp hour battery, an electronic speed controller, a ten drone propeller and motor, a survey grade antenna, and an external on/off power switch.
