Mahindra Ecole Centrale developed its first Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

Mahindra Ecole Centrale developed its first Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

The MEC's Black Pearl is currently capable of executing instructions that have been hard coded into it, with high accuracy and with minimal error. It is speculated that over the next few months it would be made capable of taking inputs from the sensors (Depth, Echosounder, Camera, etc.), process them, and based on the data, navigate its trajectory so that it can avoid obstacles, retrieve objects from the water floor and carry out dedicated missions.

Black Pearl is equipped with multiple thrusters, which give it five degrees of freedom-Roll, Yaw, Surge, Heave and Sway, and it would soon have a manipulator/robotic arm so that it can acquire objects. The Jetson Nano and Camera would do the image processing tasks, and employ Neural Networks to help in the task of trajectory planning and optimization.

Mahindra Ecole Centrale (MEC) College of Engineering is an international technology school, that marks the foray of the USD 20.7 billion Mahindra Group into the higher education sector.
