Welcome to the RiverBot Project Tracking Workspace

The project team uses this page to track issues, wishes and progress.

Project at a Glance:

The RiverBot project is a community-supported effort with a STEM component.
We are designing and building a mid-sized submersible capable of carrying out science and exploration missions in the Indian River Lagoon in support of the scientific and academic communities interested in the Lagoon's well-being.
The design and software will be open source.
  • The team will design and publish a sensor electromechanical interface.
  • The team will design and publish a sensor software interface.
  • The tea will publish a science mission how-to guide.
  • STEM students will be able to build their own sensors and schedule time on the robot to gather datal.

Project Objectives 

Build a robot that will:
  • Be mission-modular
  • Operate for 4 hours
  • Enable gathering data at different depths
  • Enable gathering
  • Enable gathering data at night
  • Precision navigate up narrow streams and back down again
