The competition entailed the design and construction of a submarine capable of achieving as many of the following tasks as possible within a half-hour time-frame:
- Locating a beacon equipped with an acoustical pinger and a flash unit
- Retrieving an orange ring attached to the beacon
- Identifying the ping rate and the flash rate
Our submarine went officially under the name "BRAIN" but was unofficially named "Helen Keller" by the software development team the week several critical subsystems (notably, the sonar and the cameras) simultaneously failed during development.
