Daytona Beach, FL Exit 261: Join the City of South Daytona and Robonation for a day of science, technology and sun. The International Roboboat Competition is a demonstration of the capabilities of autonomous, robotic boats.
RoboBoat is an annual robotics contest, where the next generation of engineers put their autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs) through a series of advanced water-based challenges that mirror real-world maritime operations.
Student teams design autonomous, robotic boats to navigate and race through an aquatic obstacle course. The behaviors demonstrated by these boats mimic tasks that are being developed for coastal surveillance, port security and other types of oceanographic operations.
Don’t miss the “Technology under the Big Top Tent” on Saturday, June 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will also be on-grass robot demonstrations and exciting activities with local organizations. Free and open to the public.
