The RobotX Interactive Forum is a biennial gathering of the RobotX community – students, researchers, government and industry leaders – to gather and engage in the development and use of autonomous maritime systems.

Interested students are invited to submit a poster showcasing ongoing research in autonomous vehicle systems. A selection of posters will be chosen to be presented to a global audience at the 2019 RobotX Interactive Forum.

Click on this link for the list of topics and poster submissions instructions.

POSTER SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE BY NOVEMBER 3, 2019. No posters will be accepted after the deadline.

POSTER RESULTS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON NOVEMBER 16, 2019. 

The RobotX Interactive Forum is a biennial gathering of students, researchers, government and industry leaders engaged in the development and use of autonomous maritime systems.

The 2019 RobotX Interactive Forum aims to advance maritime robotics research and development by showcasing modeling and simulation ideas and capabilities.

Components of the 2019 RobotX Interactive Forum include: Research Poster Presentations, Hackathon, Tutorials, Academia/Government/Industry discussions on importance of autonomy in the maritime domain, and winners of the VRX competition. We look forward to you joining the discussion!
