TIBURON

The AUV team of NIT Rourkela

Welcome

Since we started work in December 2014

We, Team Tiburon is a group of dedicated and innovative students, based in NIT Rourkela. Formed in 2014, the team works towards designing and developing an AUV capable of performing a plethora of tasks underwater, all without a human pilot! The interdisciplinary team primarily aspires to contribute to the emerging fields of Marine Robotics and Autonomous Systems. As part of its yearly activities, the team also participates in leading national and international level competitions, aiming to gain exposure and test its vehicle against teams from other institutes. What prominently stands up apart from others is the cost-effectiveness and light weight of our vehicles.
