Robotic Kayak: Multiple Autonomous Surface Vehicle ProjectPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The goal of this project was to design and manufacture an Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) in collaboration with Santa Clara University that would integrate with their existing ASV fleet. The team was responsible for designing a universal chassis that enabled it to attach to several different kayak hulls, and upgrading the electronics to modern microcontroller architecture. The vessel is propelled by two motors and controlled by a microcontroller located onboard. The microcontroller receives commands from an off board base station, which facilitates communication between other ASVs to perform group maneuvers. The chassis and electronics were successfully designed and implemented on the kayak, demonstrating the overall integration of the teams design to the existing fleet.
