In anticipation of the upcoming RoboSub competition next month in San Diego, students from Cornell University’s Autonomous Underwater Vehicle program released the trailer video below demoing their AUV ‘bots, nicknamed Thor and Loki. They’ve also released the software they use for the ‘bots out on GitHub.
RoboNation, the organizers of the event, describe it as such:
Student-designed and -built autonomous robotic submarines must complete a difficult series of visual- and acoustic-based tasks in this popular international competition. These tasks simulate the work required of robotic subs in many facets of underwater activity.
This competition is geared toward students at the collegiate level, simply based on the level of difficulty, but is open to students of any age. Your team will be required to design and build a vehicle from scratch, write a technical paper, make a presentation before a panel of judges, create a short video, and develop a website that documents your progress.
Watch the CUAUV video below and good luck to them, and all the other teams.
