Computer Laboratory undergraduates cruise in the Student Autonomous Underwater Challenge – Europe
The Cambridge team (which included Computer Laboratory undergraduates Sunil Shah and Andy Prichard) were runners up in the Student Autonomous Underwater Challenge – Europe (SAUC-E), a competition for students from across Europe.
SAUC-E has been designed to advance Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) technology. The students were challenged to design and build an AUV and then perform missions in the underwater environment.
This is the first year that Cambridge has competed and the team hopes to recruit more Computer Science undergraduates for next year's competition, which will be held in Brest, France.
