A remotely operated underwater vehicle searching the Victoria Strait made the discovery on Sunday. It’s one of two ships that belonged to Sir John Franklin’s doomed Arctic expedition, though researchers aren’t sure yet whether it’s HMS Terror or HMS Erebus.
It took an arsenal of electronic devices to hunt down the Franklin expedition shipwreck.
Held since 2006, SAUC-E challenges the next generation of engineers to design and build an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) capable of performing realistic missions.
The event is designed to encourage students to think about underwater technology and related applications while fostering innovation and technology. It also aims at getting young engineers and scientists to consider careers in the field.
Participating teams must consist of 75% student members and have a faculty advisor.
luefin Robotics, a leading provider of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and subsea power systems, will be hosting a free webinar on September 22, 2014 at 3PM London / 10AM Boston time. In this 60-minute online session, experts will provide valuable insight on how to avoid pitfalls and stumbling blocks by addressing key factors early in the process. Bluefin will share practical advice on shipboard concerns, crew and operations personnel requirements, maintenance expectations, and data management.
