During my time at the University of Maryland, and University of Southern California I have played with several robots. Here are few of those:
Wave Adaptive Modular Vessels (WAM-V) – USV14
- Length: 4.26 meters (14 feet)
- Top Speed: 2.83 m/s
- Turning Radius: 8-10 meters
- Two water jets for propulsion.
- Two reversing buckets to produce reverse thrust.
- Payload 250 lbs
Published paper on approaches demonstrated using USV14 can be found at PAPERS and VIDEOS. The USV14 is owned by our collaborators at Florida Atlantic University.
