Team WORX Sponsorship Opportunities



Team WORX is a group of graduate and undergraduate students from Villanova University in Villanova, Pennsylvania

and Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. The team consists of mechanical engineers, computer engineers,

computer scientists, ocean engineers and engineering faculty members. Villanova students work out of their Dynamic

System’s Laboratory and FAU students works out of their Marine Systems Laboratory, giving both sides of the team access

to cutting edge technology for developing their research.


One of the challenges that comes with a long distance partnership is that only one institution can have the competition

boat at a time. To work around this problem both teams need to have the ability to replicate the other’s systems.

Villanova team members have simulated the platform and the control system by developing the SeaCat USV, and the FAU

team members have designed a second embedded linux machine as a test platform for Villanova’s software as well as an

interface to all the onboard sensors. By each University developing a representation of their counterpart’s component,

seamless integration upon scaling becomes a possibility.
