Team 2020

The 2020 team consisted of 6 different groups with different areas of expertise. These are marketing, electrical, mechanical, perception, control and the board. We do however like to change things around, and many tasks are also solved in taskforces consisting of members from different groups. Below you can read more about each individual group of the 2020 team.

The Board

The Board is responsible for coordinating the project and securing a sustainable development of the organization. Their involvement ensures close cooperation between the respective group leaders, and the team’s overall progression, budget and wellbeing.

Head of Control

Control

The Control group is responsible for implementing the software used to control the AUV. The software makes the AUV able to solve the tasks presented. To do this they are working with for example path and mission planning, machine learning and state estimation.

Head of Perception

Perception

The Perception group’s is responsible for implementing the sensory of the AUV. On a daily basis they are working with computer vision, SLAM and Sensor Interfacing. This year they are especially focusing on acoustics, so the AUV can improve its underwater communication. The group members gain valuable experience in how the AUV perceives its environment and uses the information for decision-making.

Head of mechanical

Hardware - Mechanical

The Hardware - Mechanics groups main responsibilities include 3D modeling in CAD, and developing the AUVs physical parts. In addition, they also work on replicating equipment and parts which are used in the RoboSub competition so that the AUVs abilities can be tested, as it will in the competition. Essentially, they combine fluid statics with bright solutions to develop a stable and safe underwater vehicle which will (hopefully) perform to the best of its abilities.
