5th Annual ROV Student Competition
Event Date: April 21-23, 2017
Event Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Location: Dauphin Island Sea Lab and Bishop State
More than 20 teams from across the northern Gulf coast will come to compete with their custom-built remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) in 3 different class levels of increasing complexity. The competition is also a part of the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) network of 30 regional competitions held across the U.S. and around the world.
This year’s theme is Port Cities of the Future with ROV missions relating to commerce, entertainment, health and safety. Students have been tasked to design and test an ROV that can accomplish various underwater tasks similar to real-world tasks an ROV would perform in a seaport.
