Sail-Il The First Israeli Robo-boat Team
We have assembled a team of 14 Tel Aviv University engineering
students from different backgrounds to take part as the first Israeli
team to compete in an international autonomous boat challenge
called RoboBoat (www.roboboat.org).
In the RoboBoat competition teams have one year to design, build
and deploy a fully Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) that can
navigate an obstacle course that will tests the boats to their limits
during the main event in Daytona Florida. In order to excel in this
challenge we plan to build an ASV capable precisely mapping its
immediate vicinity using LIDAR, Computer Vision and an array of
other sensors, and all this on a high speed planning platform,
something that has never been done in RoboBoat’s history.
