THE PROTOTYPE

After three months of research, planning and drawing, our hull design team started constructing the prototype of our autonomous vessel out of cedar wood and fiberglass. The prototype has a streamlined design, to reduce friction and increase efficiency. Using wood helps decrease the overall weight of the vessel. The prototype will show us how our proposed vessel design behaves in real world conditions, and it will enable us to optimize it further.
