Vehicles

Since the beginning in 2010, The Underwater Robotics Team has experimented with a number of unique designs for their vehicles, for both competition and other tasks. Some certainly worked out better than others, but each creation provided the team with knowledge that paved the way for the next generation of members.

Today the team's primary focus is with autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) such as Riptide and Maelstrom to compete in the RoboSub competition, but the team is expanding. During the 2018-2019 school year the team revisited a past project, STEMBot, an ROV to help us build STEM outreach programs, and also Eddy, a year long project to test new ideas and act as a learning experience for new team members.

Looking forward the team plans to continue to push the bounds and create vehicles to not only compete, but hopefully to assist in water research projects such as in Lake Erie.
