Sailing robots are autonomous surface vehicles (ASV) that use wind power as the only propulsion source. The robot can sailing on the sea on a much longer duration compared to the battery-powered counterpart and potentially could serve as a platform for the long-term ocean observation. In order to help teams get start with robotics sailing, we are organising a two days winter academy for students and professionals. 

The lecture will be given by Yu Cao (Southampton Sailing Robot Team) and Prof. Chao Xu (Zhejiang University).

* Introduction on robotics sailing -- history and the challenges
* The physics on sailing craft 
* Hardware and software structure of an autonomous sailing robot 
* Software tutorials on the basics of ROS, python and git version control
* Sailing robot path planning and lower level control 
* Sailing demonstration given by ZMART team (subject to weather condition)

**Time and Location**
Dec.15 and 16, 2018 @ Zhejiang University, China // Free of charge
Registration can be made online via https://jinshuju.net/f/JB7bpP
