We are glad to introduce to you our underwater robot construction kit - Micro Underwater Robot (MUR). It allows high school and college students for designing and assembling their own autonomous underwater vehicles. Integrated development environment (MUR IDE) simplifies programming of the on-board computation module to perform various underwater missions. MUR features position sensors and HD cameras which enable the implementation of computer vision and navigation algorithms similar to ones used in real world applications. In Vladivostok and Kazan competitions "Underwater intellectual robotic systems" are held as a parts of WRO (World Robotics Olympiad). The teams using MUR have successfully competed in these competitions. http://robolymp.ru/season-2017/rules-and-regulations/vodnye-irs/
MUR base kit enables a variety of operative underwater vehicle configurations which stimulate learning the basics of design and assembly of underwater vehicles. It is the mobile robotic system suitable for research and education.
Rich capabilities of the embedded Intel® Edison computing platform allow for learning and validation testing of automatic control and underwater navigation algorithms.
Learning computer vision and automatic control algorithms is possible through utilizing supplied video cameras and hydroacoustic sensors.
Such features of the underwater robot structure as weight and buoyancy distribution and thruster base determine it’s hydrodynamics and automatic control parameters. Different configurations of MUR can be examined in water media for better hydrodynamics understanding.
