ROV Name

Post by bpmackow » Fri Jan 15, 2016 1:43 pm

My team is currently trying to come up with names for our new robot this year. One of the ideas I came up with was the Wave Rider. However, I vaguely recall seeing another underwater robot at a competition with that name. It might have been the defunct local competition or it might have been MATE (we haven't been to AUVSI). Can anybody tell me if another team is already using this ROV name? I'd rather not go searching through all the tech reports.

Thanks

Hi there -

I know we've had a Surfrider Marine Recovery Systems. And there were a couple of "Waveriders" last year (I've just had the joy of downloading all of the team data for 2015).

Not sure that this helps you at all. I don't know that it really matters much - some things are just very popular (Kraken, anything dolphin or shark, Atlantis... etc)

Cheers,

Timmie
