Transient

This is a robotic cuttlefish that I worked on during the summer of 2010. The robot used a rajaform motion to propel itself through the water in a manner that is nearly silent. My specific goal was to develop the navigation system and ground control station. The navigation system was developed using GPS, compass, and an IMU. The ground control station allowed the user to select an area on a satellite imagery map, and task the robot with searching that area.
