Unformatted text preview: Projects Design Challenge Design and construct a Remotely Operated Vehicle that can be used underwater for exploration with video capabilities and sensors for measuring environmental data. Design Constraints Vehicle must be capable of submersing at least 20 ft underwater. Vehicle components and instrumentation must be water-proof. Vehicles can be no larger than 50cm x 50cm x 50cm (you may find that bigger may not be better) Vehicle and all components must be controlled from the top-side through a tether that is no longer than 15m, and 12V DC power. Vehicle may incorporate a maximum of three (3) motors for propulsion. Vehicle must incorporate one light bank, one video camera, and one sensor package. Scientific Challenge Using data from the sensor package, map the "health" of the Charles River Basin, comparing data in the river with data in the Boston harbor and near the locks. Competition Challenges Competition 1: Instrumentation (10 points) The vehicle must start behind the starting line. Then, once signaled, the vehicle will launch into the pool and navigateThe vehicle must start behind the starting line....
