Competition Overview

National Underwater Robotics Challenge - Quest For Nessie!

This year we are competing in the NURC underwater robotics competition, with this year's game titled "Quest for Nessie". Our objectives are many, but the main idea is that we are searching for the Lochness monster infamously knows as "Nessie". We are 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 will help to provide an understanding behind robotics development and marine research as well as provide a valuable experience to team members studying to become engineers.
