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 navigate

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
