Team Villanova / Florida Atlantic University

“The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat ” – Edward Lear, 1871.
  Like the famous words of Edward Lear, the Owls of Florida Atlantic University and the Wildcats of Villanova University embark on a journey of scientific discovery, competition, and talent at the Martime RobotX Challenge. Selected as one of three teams to represent the United States at this international competition, we are determined to bring this victory home.

 This event seeks to challenge students and researchers alike and push the boundaries of maritime robotics. The RobotX Challenge is unlike any other robotics competition, where teams are tasked with intelligently navigating the seascape of the Singapore Harbor.

Join us in this remarkable endeavor!
