The naval surface warfare center has developed an artificial intelligence maritime maneuvering challenge for six Indiana universities to compete with autonomous boats



Six universities in Indiana will be competing in an artificial intelligence maritime maneuvering challenge designed by the US Naval Surface Warfare Center and Trine University.  We have been provided with a boat, sensor kit, and funds to purchase additional materials.  The students will be integrating the sensors provided and those purchased to autonomously navigate the boat through the challenges. This will provide in-depth learning on machine learning, artificial intelligence, circuits, mechatronics, and naval engineering.
