Field Test Results – 7-15-16

The Villanova team hit the waters again this past Friday for another field test.  The stakes were a little higher for this test, however, as we were testing more components of the boat, such as the IMU and Wi-Fi communication.  Data was acquired from the IMU, and will help the boat locate itself based off of quantities such as speed and time, and makes GPS location more secure.  Commands were sent from the dock to the A100, and these commands were executed by the boat successfully.  Various colored buoys on the water were captured by the boat’s webcam, and are currently being processed by the team to be utilized in the realms of LiDAR and RGB recognition.
