The UW underwater robotics team was one of five teams from Washington, Oregon, and Canada to qualify for internationals at the Marine Advanced Technology Education Center's remotely operated vehicle (ROV) competition last Saturday. Dubbed "Casus," the UW's ROV is designed to clear underwater wreck sites and was built by a group of undergraduate students who came together at the beginning of the academic year. The team will continue improving its machine and fundraise for its travels as it prepares for the international competition June 21 in Orlando, Fla. The Daily was there during the team’s first pool test of the ROV by the Ocean Sciences Building.
