About Us

Hello! We are Kennesaw State University’s Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) team. Our members are undergraduate students pursuing degrees in Mechanical, Electrical, Computer, and Mechatronic engineering, as well as computer science, business, and marketing.

Our objective is to build an autonomous underwater vehicle that can navigate through obstacles underwater. Leveraging TensorFlow, we are able to produce an autonomous submarine capable of traversing through a course while performing dynamic tasks which includes: object detection, navigating through gates, aiming and launching torpedoes, manipulating physical switches, underwater identification and echolocation via hydrophones.

Annually, we compete in an engineering competition hosted by Robonation called Robosub. We travel to San Diego (when permissible) to compete in Robosub with other universities from around the world. As a result, our team gains valuable real-world engineering experience, networking opportunities, and access to new research from all competing teams.

 Our goal is to provide students with a creative outlet so they can gain hands-on engineering experience, meet other like-minded individuals, and to have fun. As engineers, we are able to do cool things that most people do not have the opportunity to and sharing those accomplishments with others is fulfilling.

We encourage you to attend one of our general body meetings. They are hosted every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month at 7:30p.m EST. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to reach out to us at: ksu.auv@gmail.com
