October 2021: Diving Into a New Generation!

During the past two years, our team has gone through some major changes. New members, new events, and– most excitingly– a new ROV! After traversing through several generations of the Underwater Robotics Team, Titan will be taking a well-deserved break to make way for our bright and shining newcomer! Our divisions have been working hard on creating new designs for the future frame, manipulators, electrical boards, and code for this new and improved ROV. Our Read more…

ROV Camera Update

We are looking forward to improving the testing process of our ROVs with new video gear. When we do pool tests, we like to have as many eyes on the ROV as possible. By using a video camera like one of these to record footage and review it later, our chances of catching issues and ability to hone in our driving skills goes up drastically.  When choosing a camera to add to our ROVs, we Read more…

2-5-19 ROV Mechanical update!

Fall semester 2018: Last semester the mechanical division worked diligently with the electrical division on designing enclosures needed for the many electronics. The mechanical division also worked on multiple prototypes including a new and improved manipulator, custom waterproof enclosures, and waterproof motors. Frame Design 2019: The frame design of 2019 is a revised version of 2018’s frame. In 2019, the main enclosure was changed from a cast acrylic tube to a die cast aluminum rectangular enclosure.

Crowdfunding Campaign Incredibly Successful

  Over the month of March, the Underwater Robotics Team held a crowdfunding campaign to help fund their trip to Washington this June. The campaign was incredibly successful, raising $3,355, 111% of their $3000 goal. With this success, the team will be able to send a group of 12 to compete, while being able to complete the ROV without cutting corners. The team would like to say thank you to the following donors: Ryan Loeffelman Read more…

Testing Begins: The ROV Comes to Life!

As the first semester of the Underwater Robotics’ build cycle comes to a close, the team eagerly wires up the electronics and places them into the enclosure. It has been a tumultuous semester – a relocation, a new design, and a new team. The team has been hard at work assembling a frame and thruster layout to maximize the points awarded in the design portion of the 2017 MATE ROV competition. Project Manager Vinnie Marco Read more…

Making the Transition: Underwater Robotics Fully Moved into SDELC

The Underwater Robotics Team is now completely moved into the Missouri S&T Student Design and Experimental Learning Center, SDELC for short. This change was long overdue, and with the recent team re-brand, it was an obvious choice to relocate. For years, the Robotics Design Team (now the Underwater Robotics Team) had used a personal space located in the Engineering Research Lab on campus. While it was beneficial for the team to have it’s own space, Read more…

PR Team Teaches Robotics

The PR division of the Underwater Robotics team has learned that Robotics isn’t just for the knowledgeable. Over the past few weeks, members have traveled to several summer programs and gave presentations about what our organization does, and real world applications, like self driving cars and underwater exploration! Traveling with our esteemed PR member, Trashbot, the Underwater Robotics team has brought great exposure to our team.   Both Boone Elementary in Ashland and the Academy Read more…

A New Vision – Robotics Gets an Upgrade

  For years the Robotics team have discussed using visual media to reach out to our supporters, in the forms of videos and live streams. Enabling experienced members to share their process and insight to the design process will engage sponsors, alumni, and prospective members alike. The biggest obstacle thus far has been obtaining a camera that can capture the delicate electrical and mechanical work with clarity. With this HD camera the team will make Read more…

Computing Division Brings Robot to Life with Neural Network

The computing division has started development on a new neural network, which will improve the robot’s autonomous performance. “The neural network is basically like a graph of nodes,” computing division lead Chris Eitutis explains. “You feed it some input, and those nodes do calculations similar to what you would imagine your brain to be like… then it will give some output, which should be what we want the robot to do.” The programmers will be Read more…
