Abstract

This project designed and realized the Waterborne Autonomous VEhicle (WAVE), a submersible modular robotic platform to enable research on underwater technologies at WPI at minimal cost. WAVEÂ’s primary design objectives were modularity and expandability while adhering to the regulations for the international competition held by the Association for Underwater Vehicle Systems International. WAVEÂ’s core features include a six degree-of-freedom chassis, a modular electronic infrastructure, and an easily configurable software framework.
