AUVSI Foundation Competitions

The AUVSI Foundation focuses on the future of robotics by developing hands-on educational programs and autonomous competitions that attract and equip students for a career in this rapidly growing field. These autonomous competitions include RoboBoat, RoboSub, RobotX, SUAS, IGVC, and IARC. Using MATLAB and Simulink, students can control their robotic platforms, simulate their environment and develop algorithms quickly.
