The Autonomous Underwater Vehicle - University of Arizona team, or AUVUA, is a student engineering club that designs, builds, and competes with underwater vehicles that operate with no remote operator. In the water, the robot can perform rolls, grab objects and fire torpedoes at targets. Every year, it performs these very tasks at RoboSub, a competition for AUVs. For an introduction to our vehicle, watch our video created for RoboSub 17 (below).
