USV Simulator


We are working on an unmanned surface vessel (USV) simulation to support the Maritime RobotX challenge. We just did a one-day tutorial on the prototype simulation environment. If you are interested:

This is an active project, so we welcome pull requests and collaborators.

There are a lot of great maritime projects out there. I’m hopeful people will announce new projects and share them with the community.
