1/9/16 – Mechanical Design and Assembly

Mechanical design completed. We are assembling the pressure hulls and frame now. The Computer Vision team (see picture) has developed a prototype system for the first task. Electrical has finished designing and ordering all components.

11/28/15 – Mechanical Design Process

The subsystem teams are virtually finished with the design phase of the RoboSub. Next comes the challenging phase of fleshing out the implementation details of messaging protocols, powering components, and machining parts to assemble and build the sub.  We need to think of a name for this robot. Ideas?

10/30/2015 – High Level Design

The electrical and mechanical subsystem teams have planned out the full high-level design of the AUVSI last week. This week, we are planning the details of implementation. Eventually, a software team will branch off the electrical team, but the teams must work together to establish a robust architecture before proceeding to break off into two [...]

10/5/15 – Pressure Hull Tests

The laser-cut acrylic capsule and aluminum endcaps have been assembled into a water-tight system. We have tested several of the capsules and the double O-ring seals work quite well. On the hardware electrical side, we're working on programming the motor controllers, and they should be ready to go soon. Mark (testing lead) executing a capsule [...]

9/30/14-5/14/15 – First Meetings

5/14/2015 After getting familiar with Altium Designer and SolidWorks, we are planning to build the AUV over the summer so that we can test software systems once school begins. A basic computer vision algorithm has been implemented, and we are looking at ways to simulate the underwater environment for software-in-the-loop testing purposes. Shout-out to VideoRay [...]
