AUTONOMOUS UNDERWATER VEHICLE
Tartan Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (TAUV) is a newly founded interdisciplinary team of undergraduates at Carnegie Mellon University. TAUV designs, constructs, programs and tests an autonomous submarine to compete in the annual international RoboSub competition. Although small, our team is composed of passionate and dedicated students with engineering experience.
Kingfisher is TAUVs second-generation vehicle. Outfitted with an array of sensors and a powerful onboard computer, Kingfisher is capable of prolonged underwater navigation and advanced trajectory control.
Albatross is TAUVs first vehicle entered into competition.
Create hardware CAD, PCB designs, and simulate software.
Fabricate the AUV, assemble electronics system, and test software.
Participate in the annual Robosub competition in August.
