I am designing a system that will allow me to take measurements of ultrasonic sound waves with an Onda hydrophone in an underwater environment. The ultrasonic transducer will be inside a water meter. The hydrophone will be mounted to a 3D gantry system allowing me to move it precisely around the portion of the water meter where the sound waves are localized. My current plan is to mount the water meter to the frame of the gantry system. But my question to you guys and gals is how do I determine the relative position of the hydrophone to the water meter? My idea initially is to use some sort of fudicial markings on the meter to indicate where features are located on the meter. How do I sense/measure my postion relative to those fudicial markings in an underwater environment?
