AUTONOMOUS MARINE VEHICLES

Current Areas of Study

HYDROCAMEL II

AUV’s are being used around the world for: underwater exploration, underwater cable layout and inspection, marine biology, geology, archeology, environmental monitoring, and defence industry uses.

The Hydrocamel II is the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) developed in Israel. It has been under active development since 2015, ever since improving its capabilities and autonomy. The Hydrocamel II is a versatile AUV cable of operating at depths of up to 300m. The flexible design makes it ideal for testing new equipment, sensors, and algorithms, as it allows us complete control over all aspects of the AVU.

UNMANNED SURFACE VEHICLES

Multiple autonomous surface vehicles have been developed at LAR. Currently, an autonomous platform based on the on the WAM-V vessel is being actively developed. The development of surface as well as underwater vessels, opens avenues to explore also the cooperation opportunities of such vehicles.

HYDROCAMEL I

The Hydrocamel I was designed and built in a duration of 9 months by a team of 20 students, back in 2013. It has been built especially for the robosub competition. This vehicle was our first attempt at going underwater.
