Competition Overview

National Underwater Robotics Challenge - Quest For Nessie!

In 2011 we are competed in the NURC underwater robotics competition, with the year's game titled "Quest for Nessie". Our objectives were many, but the main idea was that we were searching for the Loch Ness monster infamously knows as "Nessie". We were to build an underwater remote operated vehicle (ROV) in order to seek out Nessie and collect "data samples" in the process. The build process and competition helped to provide an understanding behind robotics development and marine research as well as provide a valuable experience to team members studying to become engineers.
