About us


Our Mission:

The Team NCTU for the Maritime RobotX Challenge is composed of graduate and undergraduate students from Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and the Robotics Institute, supervised by Dr. Hsueh-Cheng Nick Wang. We wish to put together the efforts from talented and dedicated students here, and develop cutting-edge intelligent systems that create values.

Developments


Our Vehicle

NCTU was awarded the WAM-V to the 2018 RobotX Challenge by Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI). This year, we made a Push Goal from "Together We Go Far" to "Together We Go RobotX". We are excited about the coming of WAM-V, and building a highly intelligent system to solve the real-world problem for USV(Unmanned Surface Vehicles).



Our Training Course

We offer a course covering the fundamental and advanced domains in vision for mobility tasks, including the challenges combining object recognition, pose estimation, motion planning, and SLAM. We will systematically study each components from previous winning teams in 2014 and 2016, as well as cutting-edge methods that may better improve the performance. We will use "Duckietown" (an open course "MIT 2.166 Autonomous Vehicles) as platform, and focus advanced topics using Gazebo, 3D perception, and deep learning.



Our Water Access

The Team NCTU will use the in-campus "Bamboo Lake" as the home of the WAM-V. We wish to make RobotX a landmark in NCTU, and therefore we will work together with students and experts who have design backgrounds. We will host a workshop aiming at forming the combination of technology and art and build a competition obsticles that's not only functional and also a piece of art work. By this, we hope to create the value of cross-domain knowledge and creativities.
