RoboBoat 2023: Ocean Exploration

24 Teams, 19 ASVs, 4 Continents, 1 Goal

RoboBoat 2023 | Sarasota, Florida

Theme: Ocean Exploration

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 2023 theme, Ocean Exploration, will influence the real-world challenges our teams will tackle, testing their skills. 

RoboBoats are built by students and powered by ingenuity.

This year, we’re headed back to Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota, Florida for the 16th Annual RoboBoat Competition. If you won’t be joining us in person, make sure to tune in across our social media platforms and stay updated here with the latest videos, news, and photos.
