If you have a question about this talk, please contact Publicity Officer, IMechE Beds & Cambs area.

A presentation by the Cambridge AUV team on their activities. They will show and describe their latest AUV ‘Red Herring’.

The Cambridge Autonomous Underwater Vehicle team ( is a student-run project to develop autonomous robot submarines.

The initial design criteria were for a small, cheap ROV to inspect the underside of pancake ice flows in the arctic. Developing an AUV that could perform this task remains a long term goal. The immediate challenge is the annual SAUC -E (Student Autonomous Underwater Challenge – Europe) competition, aimed at University level students. The teams must design and build their own AUVs to attempt an underwater assault course consisting of gates, drop targets, surface zones and many other obstacles.

Refreshments served from 18.30. Talk starts at 19.00. Ends 21.00 following discussion.

Free to attend. All welcome. No need to register.

This talk is suitable for GCSE , A-level and university students, as well as practising engineers. You are encouraged to bring with you members of your family who are interested in engineering.
