Photos: Remotely Operated Vehicle Challenge

April 22, 2017

[Updated] Twenty-five teams from twelve Bermuda schools and educational organizations converged on the National Sports Centre today [April 22] for the 2017 MATE Bermuda Regional Remotely Operated Vehicle [ROV] Challenge.

The program, hosted by the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences [BIOS], is part of the Mid Atlantic Robotics IN Education Program [MARINE], with lead donor support from HSBC.


During the challenge, students set the robotic vehicles they have built in collaboration with instructors on a variety of missions.

For beginner students, this year’s theme for the ROV piloting challenge was Bermuda-based, focusing on navigating through a reproduction of the island’s Harrington Sound to collect sea urchins and sea grasses.

The theme for students competing at the Scout and Ranger levels was “Port Cities of the Future: Commerce, Entertainment, Health and Safety.” We will update with result as able.
