RobotX Challenge 2024

Ahoy explorers! It's time to take maritime robotics and autonomy to the next level. Let us introduce you to the Maritime RobotX Challenge.

The Maritime RobotX Challenge is an international competition designed to foster student interest in autonomous robotic systems operating in the maritime domain, with an emphasis on the science and engineering of cooperative autonomy. This competition facilitates the building of international relationships between students, academic institutions, and industry partners.

Gather your bearings and set out on this systems engineering journey where you will get the opportunity to broaden your exposure to autonomy and robotic technologies by developing a maritime system using the WAM-V surface craft manufactured by Marine Advanced Robotics.

We look forward to seeing you and your WAM-V in Sarasota in November 2024!
