MATE ROV Competition and Live Video Feed

Today was the first of three competition days at the MATE international ROV competition in Orlando, Florida. The Casus team spent the day attending competition events, unpacking the ROV, preparing for a safety inspection, and setting up a display for engineering judges. The ROV passed the safety inspection, but would not respond when it was powered up. The controls team identified the problem — a faulty power conversion unit, likely damaged during the shipping process. As of 10:30 PM, the Casus team is working in a hotel room, equipped with a limited set of tools, but with confidence in their ability to fix the problem.
