Archipela-GO

Archipela-GO

For my senior design project (2017-2018), I worked with Nadia Kreciglowa, Anurag Makineni, Thomas Mulroy, Shreetej Reddy and George Sun on an autonomous catamaran for delivering humanitarian supplies in archipelagos. We delivered our boat to WeRobotics (blogs posts 1 and 2), who will refine the platform for use in the Phillipines.

I led the mechanical design and manufacturing effort, and created a step-by-step manufacturing and assembly process to ensure a snag-free build. This was particularly important and difficult as we were time and budget constrained to a single prototype, and we also required composite manufacturing techniques novel to the team.
