What are the challenges in building a sailing robot?

For sailing, a human is needed to plan the route, sense the direction of the wind and control the sail and the rudder accordingly.  Our sailing robot team replaces human in three ways:

  • Muscles are replaced by servo motors
  • Senses are replaced by sensors
  • Brain is replaced by computers
