Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

Created on 21 Nov 2016

Glide and explore below the surface without ever getting wet

We aim to design and manufacture an autonomous vehicle that will effectively navigate through submarine environments. It will be equipped with a camera and a ultrasonic sensor array, allowing autonomous navigation and object identification.
