Below are videos taken from the vehicle or external underwater cameras while performing mission tasks or lake surveys. Also included are general information videos about CUAUV.
Final Run from Robosub 15 (2012) w/ Killick Telemetry
This video shows our final run from the 2012 AUVSI & ONR Robosub Underwater Vehicle competition (RoboSub 15), during which we took 1st place. This video features the footage captured by 5:00 films during the live webcast, along with a synchronized playback of Killick's telemetry during the run.
CUAUV's AUVSI Competition Video Entry 2012
As part of the RoboSub competition, teams are required to produce a video overview of the team and their vehicle. Here's our competition video for the 15th annual AUVSI RoboSub competition.
Killick: 2012 Vehicle
A cinematographic overview of CUAUV's 2012 vehicle, Killick.
2012 Summer Pool Test @ Teagle
An untethered mission run from 07/10/12. This was one of the last pool tests conducted at Teagle Pool before the competition.
CUAUV's AUVSI Competition Video Entry 2011
For the first time since its inception, the AUVSI RoboSub competition now includes the production of a short video that provides insights into the team and how we operate. This video was our entry for this year's competition.
First lake test with Drekar, 6/19/2011
Video from Drekar's downward camera in Lake Cayuga, taken during an Eco-Cruise with the Cayuga Lake Floating Classroom Project. This video shows some of the macrophyte growth at a depth of 20-25 feet.
Final Tachyon practice run before competition, 7/10/10
Video of Tachyon completing the competition course untethered and autonomous on the Friday before the 2010 AUVSI/ONR competition. All tasks were completed correctly, including grabbing and releasing the recovery object.
Tachyon Untethered Autonomous Practice run, 6/16/10.
Video of tachyon completing the course untethered and autonomous. Not too bad a run, next week we will have full marker droppers and torpedo launchers (instead of having either one or the other).
Tachyon Autonomous Practice Run, 6/11/10
VPicture-in-Picture view from both internal cameras on Tachyon as it completes a fully autonomous run-through of a practice mission. Stage lighting is used to simulate sun glare on the mission elements.
Tachyon Autonomous Practice Run, 6/10/10
This video was taken with an underwater camera while Tachyon autonomously completed a practice mission in Teagle pool
Nova's run on August 2 that won the AUVSI/ONR AUV competiton for Cornell University.
Video taken during the final run for the webcast with commentary. Includes video of Nova completing all tasks from a combination of diver camera and seabotix ROV camera.
Video from the downward camera of the Cornell University Autonomous Underwater Vehicle team's vehicle Nova during its final run during the AUVSI/ONR AUV competition at TRANSDEC in San Diego, CA. This run was untethered and fully autonomous. During this run, Nova won the competition by completing all tasks perfectly except for marker dropping, where the darts land on just outside of the correct targets. The downward camera view shows Nova autonomously following pipelines, centering on the bins, dropping markers, centering on the briefcase and surfacing in the recovery zone.
Video from the forward camera of the Cornell University Autonomous Underwater Vehicle team's vehicle Nova during its final run during the AUVSI/ONR AUV competition at TRANSDEC in San Diego, CA. The forward camera view shows Nova autonomously ramming the buoy, centering and going under the barbed wire, firing torpedoes through the nest, and surfacing in the recovery zone.
Nova in Cayuga Lake
On July 12, Nova was deployed off of the Haendel into Cayuga Lake as part of the Cayuga Lake Floating Classroom Project. Below are videos from the forward and downward cameras of the vehicle as it autonomously completes a 10m by 10m visual macrophyte growth survey on the southwest end of the lake.
Nova Completes Entire Vision Mission Autonomously
With the competition only a couple weeks away, the team has been testing daily at Teagle Pool. Below are three videos of Nova completing the course. The first video shows both the forward and downward views from the vehicle. The second and third videos show the views from the downward and forward cameras, respectively, of a different arrangement of the course.
Triton Runs Mini-Mission
In preparation for the team's 10th Anniversary celebration, Triton runs a mini-mission. The vehicle follows pipelines, hits the buoy, drops markers into bins, and surfaces in the recovery zone.
During a pool test in Teagle Pool, Triton rams a bouy, backs up, then goes over it during a fully autonomous mission run.

Here the vehicle follows a pipe until it finds a box with a spade in it. Once it finds the spade it centers itself over the box and slowly lowers itself to an altitude of 1 meter. Once complete the vehicle then surfaces.
The video can be seen on youtube and embedded below. For a higher-resolution version (2.8 MB), click here.
Pipe following videos:
The mission being run starts with a zigzag search until the pipe is found. Once found the vehicle centers itself over the pipe. Once the pipe is centered in frame, the vehicle grabs the heading and follows it. After the second pipe, the vehicle takes off for the safe (which you can't see in thedownward camera).

Suit Recognition Videos:
Here the vehicle centers over a box with a club in the center of it. Once it is centered the vehicle will lower itself to an altitude of 1 meter from the bottom of the pool.
