UPSV Press Event
Last week, the Field Robotics Lab held a press event to showcase one of the two projects I’m involved with to the public: the Unmanned Port Security Vessel (UPSV). We spent almost a week doing in-water testing at UH’s Marine Center (aka Snug Harbor) in preparation for a live demo for the media.
The demo was a big success, and a number of local news outlets reported the story (UH Media, KITV, Navy Times). It also got picked up by the Huffington Post. We were very pleased by the reception, and will be spending the next few months continuing to develop the system and building a second vehicle.
