2022 Maritime RobotX Challenge

Robonation and Defence Science and Technology Group are hosting the 2022 Maritime RobotX Challenge, an international autonomous maritime robotic vehicles competition. This competition will give teams of university students a unique opportunity to develop their autonomy skills. Using the WAM-V surface craft, participants will develop an autonomous maritime system that will be put through its paces in a series of tasks in the maritime domain. RobotX is intended to foster students’ interest in robotic systems operating in the maritime domain, with a particular focus on the science and engineering of cooperative autonomy. The competition also facilitates the growth of international connections between individual students, academic institutions and industry partners, and gives participants a chance to develop the skills that will prepare them for a career in robotics.
