FISHBOT reels in fish under smartphone control


Fishing is generally considered to be a fun and relaxing activity, but it isn’t accessible for those without a certain amount of strength and dexterity. To help more people to be able to enjoy this sport, Ozgur Ozcan has been working on what he calls the “FISHBOT.”

This auto-fishing device is controlled by an Arduino Mega, along with an IBT_2 PWM driver to actuate a 400 watt DC motor for reeling duties. An HM-10 Bluetooth module enables smartphone connectivity, opening up the possibility for fingertip activation, or even via the internal gyroscope.

The setup also features a load cell, which could be used to release the line when it’s in danger of being snapped, or to weigh the fish automatically when landed.

If you're interested in making your own version, PMD Way has you covered with a huge range of parts including Arduino Uno compatible boardsmotor driver shields, stepper motors, and more.
