Project Type MQP Submission date 2013-04-25 Authors Frederick D Hunter, RBE Thomas Hunter, ME ECE URN E-project-042513-010600 Title Autonomous Man Overboard Rescue Equipment (AMORE) Advisors Stafford, Kenneth A., ME Cyganski, David, ECE Availability unrestricted
This project addressed the problem of rescuing people who have fallen overboard at sea. The large amount of time it takes for a vessel to turn around puts a man overboard in great risk. To solve this problem, a robotic rescue boat was developed with support from systems for the vessel and victim that autonomously help pilot the rescue boat via GPS, a magnetic compass, and a project specific terminal location system. The same system also supports the return of the victim to the vessel.
