   9th International RoboBoat Competition
July 4-10, 2016 • Founders Inn and Spa • 5641 Indian River Road • Virginia Beach, VA


Be a part of the 9th International RoboBoat Competition! Student teams design autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs) and navigate and race through an aquatic obstacle course. Students develop skills in system engineering by accomplishing realistic missions in the maritime environment. This event is key to keeping young engineers excited about careers in science, technology, engineering, and math and has been tremendously successful in recruiting students into the high-tech field of maritime robotics.

This event is open to the public. We encourage you to come and watch these amazing student competitors in action!
