Description/Abstract

The University of Southampton's entry into the Student Autonomous Underwater Challenge-Europe (SAUC-E) 2007 was a custom designed and built autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) named 'SotonAUV'. Originally developed for SAUC-E 2006, the vehicle was significantly upgraded for the 2007 competition. The mechanical design of the vehicle is described, and an overview of the autonomy and control approaches employed is provided. The updated vehicle successfully competed in SAUC-E 2007, winning first place in the overall competition and taking the BAE Systems prize for innovation in autonomy.
