The 2000 AUV Competition
The 2000 competition asked teams to build a fully
autonomous robotic submarine to locate a hidden underwater sonar
beacon and bring it to the surface. More information about the 2000
competition can be found on the AUVSI web site. MIT tied for second place with
Cornell University in the 2000 competition. MIT, Cornell, and
first-place winner URI were all able to identify the beacon, but no
team was able to successfully retrieve the beacon.
