A preliminary design for an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). The completed design will not be fully autonomous, but controlled through radio signals to propel itself and maneuver in a typical sized swimming pool.
The Society of Automotive Engineers hosts an annual design competition for engineering students. The competition challenges participants to design and build an off-road vehicle.
The basis for this research involves logging various sensor data from a large sample population of automobiles. The device necessary for such a task has to be capable of streaming On-Board Diagnostics and real-time GPS coordinates to a remote server for data logging.
