Cornell University has won the 12th annual AUVSI Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Competition. And, according to Cornell's tweet
, second place goes to University of Victoria and 3rd to University of Rhode Island. Interestingly, these three teams weren't even in the top 5 of last year's compeitors (pdf), so they seem to have put in a lot of work. You can read all of the team's technical papers here. Cornell's, U.Vic. and URI's papers will make interesting reading for all the 2010 competitors with an ax to grind.
Congratulations to Nova, Aerius, and Ram-Boat '09 and all the engineers behind them on a job well done.
After the jump are two recap videos from the 1st and 2nd days competition.
