UFRJ Nautilus is a team from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro focused on technology and innovation in the field of autonomous vehicles.
Created in 2016, our main domain and current focus is the development of Autonomous Submarine Vehicles (AUV's), which are unmanned robots that perform their tasks completely independently.
This type of vehicle appears as a need for innovation for the subsea market, which had as its first revolution the substitution of divers in various tasks by remotely controlled subsea robots (ROVs) and now sees itself with the objective of automating this technology while maintaining the same quality.
As a validation of our AUV project, we participated in RoboSub, an international competition organized by RoboNation that takes place annually in the city of San Diego in the United States and brings together teams from all over the world to solve the problems proposed with AUV's.
