    Software testing in the river carries on into the night

    Intensive software testing of the AUV in the river Cam carries on past nightfallWith blitz week now in full swing, our software team have finally had the much needed opportunity to test recently developed software. For several days now, we have had the AUV running in the river Cam behind the department. And with tethered power now allowing extended outdoor operation, a setting sun today was hardly noticed by our seemingly tireless coders!

    The upshot is that we have now logged more extensive sonar data than ever before and have further improved control loops, allowing more precise positioning in the water.
