Competitions

The S&T Underwater Robotics Team competes in the annual Marine Advanced Technology Education Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle (MATE ROV) competition. We build a robot to navigate through an underwater course that simulates solving problems commonly found in port cities. This international competition hosts teams from K-12, Collegiate and Professional, and includes a presentation component that pushes the team to act like a company presenting to a marketing board.

We are quickly approaching the MATE 2022 competition season, and launching into the final stages of preparation!

Real Life Applications

There are many dangerous situations where using human divers is less than optimal. In those situations, underwater robots like ours are used instead! Here are a few examples:

  • Researching delicate coral reefs
  • Checking infrastructure
  • Collecting data all year
  • Exploring places deeper than humans can reach
  • And many more!

There are tons of uses for underwater robots, and you can explore many of them with the Underwater Robotics Team!
