RoboBoat is an international student competition designed to build and enhance a community of innovators, capable of making substantive contributions to the Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) domain. Such vision is achieved by providing a venue and mechanism, whereby practitioners of this technology come together at the event to share knowledge, innovate, and collaboratively push the envelope of ASV systems.

The RoboBoat student competition is designed to build an international community of innovators – ranging from high school to higher education, capable of making substantive contributions to the maritime field and pushing development of small scale (X-Class) Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV). The competition is designed to encourage participants to develop a USV using systems engineering principles.

  • Early Bird Fee: $650.00 (register before November 30, 2019)
  • Full Registration: $750.00 (register after November 30, 2019)

The 2020 RoboBoat Registration closes on February 29, 2020.

Student teams design autonomous, robotic boats to navigate and race through an aquatic obstacle course. The behaviors demonstrated by these boats mimic tasks that are being developed for coastal surveillance, port security and other types of oceanographic operations.

Build a Boat.
The competition begins by assembling some firstmates. Read the rules carefully and then try out your sea-legs by designing, building and testing your self-driving boat (small scale of course) — which we robotically refer to as an Autonomous Surface Vessel or ASV.
Sail that Boat.
During competition, the ASV shall autonomously navigate itself through a pre-defined course, allowing the student team to showcase their design and engineering skills. Vehicles are evaluated on their maneuverability, propulsion system and payload selection, enabling onboard autonomy.
Win with that Boat.
No surprise here, the team with the most points wins. But bragging rights and prize money aside, along the way students will be bonding with teammates, striking up friendly rivalries and becoming part of a close-knit maritime community. So read the rules, join the conversation, and set sail for the future.
