RoboBoat 2023

RoboBoat 2023

Ahoy explorers! Are you keen on taking an experimental learning approach to maritime autonomy? Let us introduce you to RoboBoat. 

RoboBoat is an international competition that invites participants to tackle simplified versions of challenges facing the modern maritime industry. These challenges may include coastal surveillance, port security, oceanographic exploration, and cooperative behavior between systems operating in different domains (air and sea). 

Ready your sea legs and set sail on this systems engineering journey where you will have the opportunity to design, build and test an Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV). Once your masterpiece is complete, put it to the test and see the uniqueness of your system compared to that of your competitors from around the world.

Bring your boat and join us at the 16th annual RoboBoat competition!

We are the student research club which is called AGH Solar Boat which promotes an environment-friendly innovative solutions at on of the top technical universities in Poland. One of our projects is an autonomous boat, which has already participated in the previous edition of RoboBoat competition. We are glad that we have the opportunity to participate in the competition in 2023.

Team Owltonomous was started by a group of students who had similar passions in exploring autonomy in marine robotics. The team name was based on the University logo, the Owls, and implementing the word autonomous. This years team travelled to New South Wales for the RobotX Competition and is excited to compete in RoboBoat. We are a group of students who hope to keep the robotics legacy going here at Florida Atlantic University.

MW in ancient Egyptian language means water. MW is a seasoned undergraduate team, based in Cairo, Egypt, representing the Military Technical College and specialized in building maritime autonomous systems, ASV and ROV. Loaded with thousands of years of ancient Egyptian legacy of ship building. Although 2019 was the first entry for MW, which was full of logistics issues, but got rewarded the rapid prototyping award. This year 2023, MW are much more into the challenge.

We are a second year team that will be making our first appearance in person and is planning on knocking it out of the water. We didn’t make it to competition last year but we did learn a lot from competing virtually and from the mistakes we made along the way. This year we have learned, grown, and will do better then ever.
