Finding new knowledge of deep ocean where much is still unknown
through autonomous underwater vehicles

ABOUT

Student Project

Kyutech Underwater Robotics is a student project based at the Kyushu Institute of Technology, designed to train underwater robotics engineers. In this project, students are responsible for the development of robots, training of members, and various events.

Expertise Fusion

Our team consists of members with various specialties such as mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, and information engineering. We develope new underwear technologies by utilizing the wide range of knowledge of our team members.

Multinational

Our team includes many international students. Through knowledge sharing and English communication, we aim to become world-class underwater robot engineers.

KYUBIC is a hovering AUV developed as an educational platform in 2020. It has high expandability by modularizing each function and connectorization. The protective box frame also serves as a handle that provides high portability for the equipment.

KYUBIC has a high precision IMU and DVL for accurate self-position estimation. The installed high-capacity battery provides approximately 3 hours of continuous operation.

KYUBIC is developed using MATLAB Simulink, which makes it possible to develop programs that are visually easy to understand. Each node uses ROS for communication and can be developed in any programming language.
