Developing India's Best Student AUVs since 2011

Check our latest developments

About Us

8 Departments | 4 Sub-Divisons | 1 Team | AUV-IITB

Introduction

AUV-IITB comprises of highly enthusiastic and hard working technocrats ranging from bright-eyed freshmen to driven senior undergraduates and tech-experienced post-graduates spanning various branches of engineering like Mechanical, Electrical, Software, Aerospace, Material Science and Civil at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay.

The team works towards participating at AUVSI Robosub Competition, which is held annually in July at San Diego, California. The competition is a platform for students to display their skills in underwater robotics and build a connection with industries working along similar verticals. The competition demands designing and manufacturing of an autonomous underwater vehicle that can perform predefined tasks. This draws upon expertise of the areas of engineering provided by multifaceted team.

 

Sub Divisions

Software

200k+ lines of code and building, this subdivision uses ROS as a major abstraction and is responsible for the automation of Matsya.

Electrical

Working more on the firmware abstraction, this team assures quality actuators and reliability in the electronic stack.

Mechanical

Working on the vehicle frame and the waterproof hulls, the team ensures steady vehicle dynamics and streamlined performance underwater.

Image Processing

Using OpenCV as a software tool, this team ensures the proximity of a task area and helps in their execution.


Our Latest AUV


Prototyping

With the great bunch of experience we acquired at Robosub 2013, the sub-divisions came up with innovative solutions to tackle the worst of problems

Design

Keeping in mind the mistakes from previous designs and the changes that the vehicle was undergoing, a modern, robust and economical design was made to meet all the needs of the team.

Development

Keeping in mind the above points the journey meandered into the development phase with the help of our industrial collaborations and the team's technical know-how.

Testing

The last and the toughest of all phases came and the team was ready to test the vehicle and remove the minutest of bugs in the design and resolve it to ensure a good performance and reliabilty.
