They have also entered and won the Student Autonomous Underwater Challenge – Europe (SAUC-E), besting 5 other teams. The challenge was held in France this year.
The team also won the THALES Special Award for innovation in autonomy, taking home €11,000.
Their robot named Nessie III was able to autonomously complete all the competition tasks which included touching a buoy, dropping markers on a target and making a complete map of the competition area.
Now they just need to make an underwater map of Loch Ness to see if there really is a monster living there.
