Project Presentation has come and gone, and the unveiling of WAVE was a great success. The team presented the design of each subsystem as well as the planned integration. We also proudly displayed WAVE’s components alongside the poster. The audience asked numerous questions, and we were able to answer them all as well as articulate the future of the project. Our presentation gained attention as we were asked to give the presentation a second time at The AUVSI New England Chapter’s First Annual Breakfast Meeting. This request is a huge honor as our goal is to compete in the AUVSI competition. This meeting will take place on May 28th, and although some of our team members will be graduating, others will continue to work on WAVE and stay at WPI. We will update you with the results of this meeting.

Project Presentation Prep

We will officially presenting our current progress on WAVE on April, 18 for WPI’s Project Presentation Day. This past week all three teams were focused on creating a presentation and practicing delivering it. The presentation is divided into the following categories: introduction & overview, mechanical design, electrical design, software design, future work, and conclusions. This breakdown will show you the motivations for the project, the individual sub-system challenges, and the integration of the sub-systems into the WAVE platform. Since the majority of the effort is being placed on this presentation, we will be light on technical updates for the time being.
