  • 2021 - HURON | Michigan RoboSub

    2021 AUV - HURON Huron was designed to be modular, allowing for the addition of more complex systems in future years. It detects objects within visual distance using our computer vision models, which locate tasks to execute. ​ Huron is named after the Huron River, a river that passes through the University of Michigan's central campus. Naming our vehicle after a body of water, especially one that is an important part of the University of Michigan, seemed fitting. ​ This page overviews Huron's mechanical, electrical, and software subsystems. Special thanks to all of our sponsors, advisors, and supporters that helped bring Huron to life. 2021 Rankings 4th Website 4th Sensor Optimization 10 th Hull Design Skills Videos Sensor Optimization: Hull Design: View our Technical Design Report MECHANICAL Managing the complexity of the mechanical systems was essential, in order to allow us to allocate more time to testing the sub’s algorithms. Manufacturing limitations related to COVID-19 restrictions contributed to our decision to design Huron with an emphasis on ease of manufacturing and assembly, allowing us to lay the groundwork in the 2021 RoboSub competition for pursuing additional, more challenging tasks in the future.

    FOLLOW OUR PROGRESS: PARTNER UP WITH US AS A SPONSOR TO SUPPORT OUR WORK: CONTACT US June 2021 We've received our black anodized parts which in addition to looking really awesome will protect our plates from chlorinated environments. Despite the global chip shortage, we've managed to get our hands on some STM32 microcontrollers for some summer R&D projects. Stay tuned for some new custom electronics in 2021 and 2022. This week, we've been in the new Ford Robotics Building to start shooting our skills video for the 2021 RoboSub competition. Thanks to the LSA department, our Media team has a full professional setup. APRil 2021 This week's testing went smoothly at the University of Michigan Marine Hydrodynamics Laboratory, and the team was able to capture some underwater footage in order to train the sub's machine learning. The Robo-sub Mechanical devision was busy 3D printing an electronics-optimized chassis this week, and the team was able to mount the electronics with a soldering iron. Our team also successfully tested the sub's buoyancy and balance. March 2021 This week, our mechanical and software teams were busy gathering machine-learning data for the sub models. We also verified that the sub no longer contains any leaks during testing. Our team’s first custom-printed circuit board will enable us to test our hydrophones by providing amplifiers and filtering for four hydrophones and a four-channel analog to digital conversion chip. This chip will then work to communicate digital audio back to our main computer for analysis.
