FSU PC, Gulf Coast State College Join Forces for RoboBoat Autonomous Challenge
 

When students from Florida State University Panama City and Gulf Coast State College students teamed up to compete for the first time in the 2019 International RoboBoat Competition, they knew they were underdogs. Both schools were newcomers to the autonomous boat challenge. They didn’t have a consistent shared workspace. Many of the students hadn’t even taken an introductory programming course. Then Hurricane Michael struck.

But team Seminole Coast was not to be deterred, ultimately overcoming lost housing, newcomer status, and bureaucratic hurdles to earn the respect of the judges, a new Nvidia Jetson TX2 and $1,250 in prizes. To read the full story about their challenges and experience at the RoboNation RoboBoat 2019 Competition, click here.

Featured Tech Product
 
Pliant Energy Systems - Swimming Skating Crawling Robot
 
U.S. company Pliant Energy Systems has turned one of its green energy technologies into a propulsion system for a swimming robot capable of exploring land and sea. The Velox robot can move through water and over sand, pebbles, snow, ice and other solid ground, completing tasks that robots designed purely for either land or sea would be unsuited for. Velox's versatility is due to its undulating soft fins, which sit on either side of Velox and move in a hyperbolic pattern reminiscent of a stingray or a millipede. Pliant Energy originally developed the fins as a system for generating electricity from rivers. It wanted a shape that wouldn't become entangled with debris or be damaged by bumping up against heavy objects like tree trunks.
