ABOUT US

REAF is a student-lead project team from Texas A&M University, sponsored by the the TAMU Women in Engineering program. Established in 2015, our purpose is to build an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for the annual RoboSub Competition. Each year, past experiences and new ideas are called upon and combined together to construct a better robot than the year before.

Members range from freshman to seniors and come from a variety of different engineering backgrounds. No previous experience is necessary to join.

Follow us this year to track our effort for the upcoming competition!

OUR MISSION

The Women in Engineering's AUV team aims to create an environment in which students can apply their knowledge from the classroom to real-world scenarios. Along with learning real-life engineering skills, students learn to communicate with and work on multidisciplinary teams. Creating an AUV provides a wealth of challenges students must overcome, forcing them to learn creative problem solving methods they'll be able to apply in their future as engineers and pushing them to grow as leaders.

Our all-women team also provides us with opportunities to do mentorships within our project teams. We aim to retain students within A&M's College of Engineering, focusing specifically on women. Only 40% of our team members start the team with any experience with building AUVs or other similar projects. It is our goal to provide female students with a safe place to gain that experience and expand their engineering skill sets.

SUBTEAMS

MECHANICAL

We focus on building an efficient watertight vehicle. based on principles of hydrodynamics.

ELECTRICAL

We focus on electrical system design involving power distribution and sensor integration. 

PROGRAMMING

We focus on deploying thruster control and predictive computer vision algorithms on the vehicle's mini PC. 

MECHATRONICS

We focus on developing specialized mechanisms that contribute to vehicle's ability to complete tasks in the obstacle course.
