2015 RoboBoat Judges’ Awards

Outreach Award — University of Florida
Compact Design Award — Electronic Engineering Polytechnic Institute of Surabaya 
Systems Engineering Award — University of Ulsan 

The International RoboBoat Competition was first held in 2008. During the competition, student teams race autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs) of their own design through an aquatic obstacle course. This includes littoral area navigation, channel following, and autonomous docking. The competition provides an opportunity for students to develop skills in system engineering by accomplishing realistic missions with autonomous vehicles in the maritime environment.

The RoboBoat Competition is an important 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!
