    TitleAutonomous Man Overboard Rescue Equipment (AMORE)

    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.
