PARTNER UP WITH US AS A SPONSOR TO SUPPORT OUR WORK:
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
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.
