I'm a beginner to robotics have only designed one bot before,
I wish to actuate a wireless remote controlled underwater robot, which operates on battery (rechargeable), 2 differential motors, 1 motors to control the depth along with floaters to maintain balance underwater, solar panel to recharge the battery, robotic arm and also wish to include camera vision to maneuver the bot .
i have a few questions about all of this before i start:
1.will i be able to set an automated battery level monitor to alarm when battery level to low?
2.how many channels of transmissions will i require to control the bot, the robotic arm and receive video output from the camera?
3.will i be able to cut off power to the entire bot will surfaced to recharge?
4.how many battery's and solar panel will i require to work the bot?
5.which microcontroller must i use?
any help will be appreciated .. thanks
