The team has been hard are work this week manufacturing and assembling a plastic model of the robot that will be used to test drag forces in the water. Once complete we plan to drop it into the university’s rowing tank and estimate how much power the robot will need to meet or exceed its required water speed of 1 knot (1.69 ft/s). What you see below is a rough outline of the robot made from laser cut acrylic and polycarbonate sheet.
