Blue ROV thrusters in competition


(Jim Forbes) #1

My son Kevin is on a robotics team at the university of Arizona. They are competing in an autonomous competition Robosub put on by AUVSI Foundation. There are a bunch of teams there, I think close to 30. They ended up in 4th place so far, with the final competition Sunday, starting at 1 pm PDT (it’s in San Diego, CA, USA). Their AUV uses 8 of the Blue Rov thrusters…I guess they work just fine!

Looks like the Blue ROV thrusters worked great! The AUVUA team ended up in 4th place after semi-finals, and the results of the finals will be announced soon at the awards banquet.

Jim,

Thanks for sharing! Attached are some pictures that we took of the AUVUA team and their AUV.
