SAUVC 2018 announced!
SAUVC 2018 is on!  Next year's SAUVC will be held on March 9-12 2018 in Singapore.  

The Singapore AUV challenge aims to provide students an opportunity to experience the challenges of AUV system engineering and develop skills in the associated technologies. The focus is on autonomous operations in a swimming pool format, rather than remote control in a small tank, and it is aimed at University, Polytechnic and school students. The Singapore AUV challenge emphasises on outreach, learning and skill development. The competition is open to Singapore and international participants.
  • To provide opportunities for students to experience the challenges of system engineering.
  • To develop an appreciation, understanding and skills in AUV related technologies.
  • To expose students to AUV technologies and increase awareness and interest in careers related to marine robotics.
  • To provide a learning ground for students with an interest in international AUV competitions.
