Our vehicle

We took the MiddleAUV CM4 vehicle by Robotics Center and significantly improved it to meet our requirements.

This vehicle features Raspberry Pi CM4 and Coral AI accelerator module. It's also possible to connect an additional payload in various ways.

We are aiming for the competition again!

Our team participated in the Robosub 2019 with AUV named after the Akademik Ageev.
