Coleman-ENVI-Mesa College Team Places 17th Overall in 2016 International RoboSub Event

2016 RoboSub Team: Dan Wolfson (ENVI Volunteer), Rod Weiss (Coleman Advisor), Nick Cantrell (Student, Mesa College), Rob Gubala (ENVI Volunteer), Bradly Risse (Student, Coleman), Mike Stephens (Student, Coleman), Choi Ng (Student, Coleman), and Mong Ng (Student, Coleman), Dr. James Burns (ENVI Volunteer).

2016 RoboSub Team: Dan Wolfson (ENVI Volunteer), Rod Weiss (Coleman Advisor), Nick Cantrell (Student, Mesa College), Rob Gubala (ENVI Volunteer), Bradly Risse (Student, Coleman), Mike Stephens (Student, Coleman), Choi Ng (Student, Coleman), and Mong Ng (Student, Coleman), Dr. James Burns (ENVI Volunteer).

Led by Dr. James Burns, co-founder of the Electric and Networked Vehicle Institute (ENVI) and founder of electric trucking start-up TransPower, Bradley Risse, Team President Coleman University and Nick Cantrell, Team Captain, San Diego Mesa College, the group went sub-to-sub against 46 formidable opponents from all over the globe in the 19th annual International RoboSub competition that was held July 25-31, 2016 at the SSC Pacific TRANSDEC in Point Loma, CA. This year marks the team’s first entry in the competition. The finals event can be viewed on the RoboSub website.

“We believe this student-run effort produced several firsts and best practices – intercollegiate teaming and cooperation within the San Diego unmanned community, novel use of gaming and VR technologies, and unique application of deep-learning techniques, thanks in part to a gift received by Coleman from IBM,” said Dr. Burns, ENVI. “With continuity and experience, this team will undoubtedly have a strong chance of a top 10 finish next year.”

The student-designed and built-from-scratch autonomous robotic submarines are required to complete a difficult series of visual- and acoustic-based tasks, which simulate the work required of robotic subs in many facets of underwater activity. In addition to a team introductory video, teams were required to submit a journal paper that outlined their design strategy, vehicle design and experimental results.

“Coleman is proud to support its students and the ENVI volunteers in their first RoboSub competition,” said Norbert J. Kubilus, President and CEO, Coleman University. “We look forward to the group’s future collaborations on developing unmanned vehicles that have practical applications.”
