This site is under construction but halfway ready.
It is about a model ship, the French battleship “Richelieu”, serviced at the Second
I built a 1:100 scale model, fully operating.
The ship is controlled from a laptop computer. In the ship is also a computer that
communicates with the laptop by a wifi connection. With this two-way communication
a camera, GPS, Compass and sensors on board are available at the laptop.
Control hardware in the ship mainly based on Phidgets, On the laptop I built a control
panel from which I can control the ships movements and special functions. Programming
is in python.
