Our team is divided into four sub-teams, each responsible for a different aspect of our AUV. The four teams are system, electrical, mechanical, and software.
Our systems team is responsible for managing team meetings, finance, web design, and ensuring that everything that supports our AUV works without any issues. In addition, part of our competition score is based upon our website and a presentation, which are both coordinated by the business team.
The electrical team is responsible for the electrical hardware present on Seabee. Projects the electrical team is a part of range from managing the power from the batteries to designing filtering circuits to read passive sonar signals.
The mechanical team manages the physical structure of Seabee along with building mechanical devices to complete competition tasks, such as grabbing arms and miniature torpedo shooters.
The software team is what makes our robot an autonomous vehicle by programming her to take in data from the devices built on the other teams, process it, and then determine what action to take, whether it is what direction to move in or recognizing what underwater objects the camera is facing.
