Team Kanaloa is a part of the Vertically Integrated Project (VIP) program that creates an opportunity to integrate undergraduates and graduate students at all majors and skill levels to collaborate on a research project. Founded in the Summer of 2016, Team Kanaloa focuses their research on maritime robotics utilizing the surface platform called the Wave Adaptive Modular Vessel (WAM-V) and will be participating in future RobotX Challenges to demonstrate the advancements of our surface vehicle. Our research is driven by state-of-the-art autonomous surface vehicles and its applications to the state of Hawaii.

Mission Statement

In the Spring 2017 semester, Team Kanaloa will develop the WAM-V into a state-of-the-art autonomous surface vehicle (ASV) capable of fully-actuated autonomous waypoint navigation with a flexible software-hardware interoperability system that will serve as a research platform for the development of unmanned systems technologies in Team Kanaloa.
