There are plenty of simulation games on the market today, from tractors to goats, but simulators have a much more immersive and entirely different side. Today we are pleased to present to you an amazing piece of work put together by the team known as the Explorandia Association.This team has developed something great submarine simulator This allows you to go through real ponds in real time with a little help. raspberry pi 3B.
They call the project “Bathysphere,” and it requires a crew of 3-7 people to operate. Crew members board a small enclosure designed to resemble a submarine cockpit. YouTuber and tech expert Tom Scott Recently, I traveled to Italy to check out this submarine simulator in person. They even had the chance to take a spin in the captain’s seat, but most of the operations are actually handled by the team sitting behind the captain.

This is just a working prototype that the Explolandia Association has spent years building. It’s very similar to his 1970s tank simulator we covered a while ago. The team sits inside a realistic cockpit and uses on-screen visual feedback to drive different mechanisms. This creates the illusion of sailing through a pond inside a submarine.
This experience is much more than just hopping on and taking a spin. There’s also a full-fledged start-up sequence that simulates cabin pressurization, and an animation that plays on-screen to give the crew the impression of being downsized before being dropped into a pond. In addition to experiencing the visual effects, the entire cabin moves and sways with the movement of the simulated submarine thanks to a series of electric motors.
The crew is surrounded by a variety of screens, dials, gauges and controls just like they would be on a real submarine. Scott was surprised that he experienced an emergency in response to an alarm and having to repair the core before returning to maneuvering around the pond. When it came time to see how everything worked, he discovered that his Raspberry Pi was responsible for visual input. This is hooked up to his Logitech webcam with pan/tilt capabilities, drops into a pond, and moves along tracks from his giant 3D plotter capable of XYZ movement.
