AUVSI is the association for unmanned vehicles.
The AUSVI foundation is organizing a competition of robotic boats: the Autonomous Surface Vehicle Competition (ASVC).
The robotic boats have to follow a specific course: slalom between clearly identified markers then return to dock.
Different courses and pre-defined tasks are organized, with relatively high degrees of difficulty.
The event is also an occasion for students to meet and share their passion.
Prize money worth several thousand dollars is awarded to the winning teams.
