A team of mechanical engineering students’ autonomous robotic boat earned the Manufacturing Award at the international RoboBoat competition, presented by RoboNation.

The five-student design team built the boat and programmed its autonomous functions for their senior design project in the C.R.A.W. (Controls, Robotics, and Automation, With respect for human interaction) Lab under the direction of Dr. Joshua Vaughan, associate professor of mechanical engineering. This was UL Lafayette’s first team to compete at the RoboBoat competition, which was held in South Daytona, Fla., this month. The team included Grant Bellard, Cristian Gary, Kaleb Gautreaux, Tristan Lee, and Luke Matt.
