The Maritime State University Robotics (MSUR) team participated in two world competitions in underwater robotics in Harbin. The MSUR team has two robots: a remotely operated uninhabited underwater vehicle (ROV) and an autonomous uninhabited underwater vehicle (AUV). The main difference between ROV and AUV is that the first is controlled by cable, and the second by Wi-Fi.
The TNLA team included Daniil Podkolzin - a student of the 2nd year of training in Shipbuilding, Ocean Engineering and System Engineering of Marine Infrastructure Objects; Yaroslav Rakov – cadet of the 2nd of training in Operation of Ship Electrical Equipment and Automation Systems; Danil Kravchenko - 2nd year student of Infocommunication Technologies and Communication Systems.
Vyacheslav Viktorov - 5th year student of the training in Information Analytical Security Systems and Alexander Letenko –1st year cadet of Maintenance of ship electrical equipment and automation systems - worked with autonomous vehicles (AUVs).
«For our teams, this was the first face-to-face international competition since 2018. In previous years, we took part in a remote format. For the guys themselves, this, of course, is a completely different impression, a new experience. The high level of competition in Harbin is evidenced by the fact that among the participating teams there were representatives of leading universities in China, including winning teams of such universally recognized competitions as Mate ROV Competition, SAUVC and RoboSub, » said the Head of the Marine Robotics Laboratory of the Scientific- innovative complex «Maritime Technopark» Dmitry Proshchenko.
«We went to compete with teams that, by and large, represent the industry of underwater robots and perform on mass-produced robots. 28 teams were entered in the class of remotely operated uninhabited underwater vehicles, of which 16 qualified, the most trained vehicles and pilots reached the final. Финальный заплыв дался нам непросто. We decided to make the most difficult missions that cost more points. We performed tasks on the verge of the technical capabilities of our device, the pilot brilliantly worked out all the missions, and only one ring, treacherously torn off the layout, did not allow us to score enough points for the first place», said Oleg Kozhevnikov, ANMSU team mentor.
