PCBWay 3rd PCB Design Contest

Underwater Autonomous Vehicle Competition


45C Robotics is from the California Academy of Mathematics and Science (CAMS) located in Carson, California. We began our endeavor into the MATE ROV Ranger competition as an independent club for the second time last year, and have worked diligently to overcome the minimal support provided from our school. 45C Robotics has eight team members, each specialized in a particular field, in order to challenge the limits of what an ROV can be. Our team has pushed through difficulties with a positive team culture for nine months to create an ROV that lives up to the Nautilus name.


45C Robotics is a rising competitor in the MATE ROV competition. While the California Academy of Mathematics and Science (CAMS) ROV team operated as an elective course in previous years, 2 years ago we branched off as an individual robotics club. By becoming a separate entity from the school, as opposed to a required class, we became comprised of only the most passionate engineers, marketers, and programmers to ensure success. Although the CAMS ROV teams had continually placed nearly last at regionals every year, the 45C Robotics team not only advanced from the regional competition, but also ranked 3rd out of 70 competitors in the 2019 MATE international competition within the second year of operation.



The sensor board uses the ATMEGA328P chip with the Arduino ISP wireless programming module to display information regarding temperature, pressure, and gyroscope. You can also add more sensors thanks to the extra pins on the chip. 


The board uses the ATMEGA2060 chip with the Arduino ISP wireless programming module to communicate with the Bl_Heli 32 BLSC ESC controller. This board gives you the flexibility to control multiple motors with a variety of different options. Using the Arduino IDE Software, you can program the board to work with sensors or even communicate with a separate Arduino via TX/RX serial rails.
