RobotX is the premier unmanned systems competition in the world today, and challenges student teams from around the world to design, engineer, and build a fully autonomous maritime vehicle to complete a series of difficult tasks. The ERAU team working on the Maritime RobotX Challenge is composed of graduate and undergraduate students from Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Software Engineering and is advised by Dr. Charles Reinholtz, Chair of the Mechanical Engineering Department at ERAU. The team is leveraging its experience as the only university group in the world to participate in all of the major unmanned system collegiate competitions hosted by the AUVSI Foundation, including repeated top 5 finishes, and 1st place at Roboboat in 2014 and 2015, and expects to return as one of the top competitors in RobotX.
As skilled as our students are, they can't succeed without the assistance and generosity of our partners, sponsors, and backers within the unmanned systems industry.
