Recap of RoboSub 2014




CUAUV cheesing with our friend and another successful team, McGill

There is a profound proverb that states "time flies when you are having fun". That wise saying could not resonate stronger with the past week we've had in San Diego. Although we've had our fair share of unforeseen challenges, sleepless nights, 4AM early shifts, and endless debugging of the vehicle, we came out with another successful vehicle and a fantastic final run. But more importantly, it was an opportunity for our team to grow stronger, become closer, and more experienced.

Towards the end of the final day, we participated in an AUV race formula-car racing style with our friend and rival, University of Florida. With both teams on the sideline and two vehicles in water, Krill counted down, and software members drove the sub. Subjugator bolted past, and Gemini was forced to eat Subjugator's bubbles.


Day 6: The day we have been preparing for. Finals!




The final score chart. We secured all 6 elements giving us close to 20,000 in total

The day we have all been waiting for. Finals! We were able to witness Gemini perform one of the best recovery tasks since we have arrived at TRANSDEC. Although it dropped the 2nd mars rock and incorrectly grabbed a cheese on the 3rd grab, Gemini was successful in all the following 4 grabs. In the end, we had 3 rock and 1 cheese in one basket, and 2 cheese in the other basket. Although we didn't sort fully, we were able to get 2 times multiplier for each of the elements.

Day 5: The 2nd Semi-final Run

For the first time during the competition, the unrelenting sun in San Diego took a break. Instead of the instant sunburn inducing brightness in TRANSDEC, ominous clouds hovered over us. This sudden difference in weather forecast meant bad news for many teams, for all of us have tuned our vision in the consistent sunny days in prior practice days.
