FEFU prepares for the Asian Championship robot with new vision and navigation systems

The team of FEFU and the Institute of Marine Technology Problems (FEI RAS) will represent Russia at the open Asian Underwater Robotics Championship Singapore AUV Challenge, the press service of the university reported. Competitions involving 30 teams from 12 countries will be held at Singapore Polytechnic University 9-12 March.

It is reported that robotics intend to use the Junior device, which brought victory in this tournament in 2017 and the second place in 2016 year. "Before the championship, the guys completely reworked the system of pattern recognition of the robot, wrote new software and improved navigation systems. Also, the device was equipped with a fundamentally new optical gyroscope. Our team was joined by new students who participated in the improvement of the robot and create a new apparatus for the next competition - the world tournament RoboSub in the USA. By the summer we plan to make a fundamentally new smaller robot, more lightweight and more advanced, "comments the comment of the curator of the team, engineer of the laboratory of uninhabited underwater vehicles of the FEFU Engineering School Kirill Kraevsky.

Last weeks the team was intensively preparing for the championship and counting on a successful performance. The main competitors for robotics are participants from China, India and Singapore. Since 2012, the FEFU team has become an annual prize winner in the class of autonomous robots at the world tournaments RoboSub and Asian championships Singapore AUV Challenge.
