CDIO Academy Case Challenge
This year Ocean Autonomy Cluster has been responsible for the task given to the CDIO Academy Case Challenge.
3 groups of students from universities in Singapore, Vietnam, Finland, and the UK have been working on assignments for autonomous ships. And today, the three groups presented their solutions at NTNU. These solutions ranged from unmanned daughter vessels controlled by a manned mother vessel to uncrewed vessels as chargers for electric ships to unmanned sea drones that can be deployed from cargo ships to collect oil spills.
This case challenge put students from different universities and disciplines into groups to solve real-life challenges and shows the importance of bringing together different backgrounds and disciplines when complex tasks should be solved.
Ocean Autonomy Cluster has been involved in this work as a part of the MIDAS project, and we would like to bring experiences from this work into new student projects, especially those we will organize locally in the coming year.
And yes, the students solved their tasks with great results, and we are wishing them all luck with their studies and work in the future.
