The Sea-Saw is an ROV designed to collect environmental data near shore/a boat. With a “boomerang” shaped body, the Sea-Saw is balanced, streamlined, and easy to turn. Its al part of my plan to take over the world. Bahahah ahahahah 2.00A Final Project The Sea-Saw moves using three motors; two direct forward motion and turning, while a third was originally designed to operate a rudder controlling vertical movement. This was ultimately changed to a vertical thruster due to manufacturing complications The two lateral motors are placed at the end of each side-section, with the largest possible distance between them given size constraints. When both motors are firing at the same power level, the Sea-Saw will be propelled forward or backward as a result of the two combined forces. By firing only one of the motors, the craft experiences a mo- ment and will therefore turn about its center of mass. In the original design, as the ROV would move forward, it would be able to change
