This SDK and the Pioneer

The Pioneer is normally controlled via a mobile device through the Blueye App (iOS/Android). The mobile device is connected via WiFi to a surface unit, and the Pioneer is connected to the surface unit via a tether cable.

This python SDK exposes the functionality of the Blueye app through a Python object. The SDK enables remote control of the Pioneer as well as reading telemetry data and viewing video streams, it is not meant for executing code on the Pioneer. To control the Pioneer you connect your laptop to the surface unit WiFi and run code that interfaces with the Pioneer through the Pioneer Python object.

Check out the Quick Start Guide to get started with using the SDK.
