WHAT IS ROBOBOAT?
RoboBoat is an international competition where students design, build, and compete with self-driving robotic boats, known as ASVs, in a series of tests aimed at challenging teams through a variety autonomous (self-driving) tasks. Our 2024 theme, Ducks Overboard, will test the skills each team will need to tackle real-would challenges.
RoboBoats are built by students and powered by ingenuity.
This year, we’re headed back to Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota, Florida, USA for the 17th Annual RoboBoat Competition. If you won’t be joining us in person, make sure to tune in across our social media platforms to stay updated with the latest videos, news, and photos.
WHAT’S THE THEME?
Ducks Overboard Theme: The tasks teams boats will be challenged with this year have been inspired by the “Friendly Floatee” event of 1992, when 28,800 rubber toys, including ducks and other animals, spilled overboard a cargo ship.
