Autonomous Underwater Vehicles

An Insight

About Us

We are an intellectual interdisciplinary team of undergraduate engineers working to build an autonomous underwater vehicle for various underwater robotics competitions. We aim to explore different dimensions of engineering, binding together our theoretical knowledge into a vehicle that can go and explore the vast seas.

Indian Institute of Information Technology Design and Manufacturing Kancheepuram (IIITDM Kancheepuram) is a Centre of Excellence for technical education and research established in 2007 by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India to pursue design and manufacturing oriented engineering education and research and to promote the competitive advantage of Indian products in global markets.


17th place in SAUVC 2019

The SAUVC competition challenges participant teams to build an AUV which can perform given tasks. These tasks are simulations of tasks operational AUVs would have to be able to perform. The tasks involve four widely faced challenges underwater such as AUV navigation, visual identification, acoustic localization and robotic manipulation.
