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.
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 unmanned autonomous underwater vehicle that can perform predefined tasks. This draws upon expertise of the areas of engineering provided by multifaceted team.
The team secured second position in the poster presentation at International Underwater Technology Workshop’13 at National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT), Chennai. The team had the chance to share the work with Prof. Tamaki Ura, University of Tokyo, one of the leading scientist in Underwater Robotics. The workshop gave the team insights into the cutting edge technologies in the oceanography and how AUV’s and ROV’s would change how we see at the oceans.
We presented two posters at the competition, one on “Design and Analysis of an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Matsya 2.0″ and other on “Dynamics of an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Matsya 2.0″. Our work was highly appreciated by everybody present at the conference and team received very good suggestions for the future works.
