Autonomous Sailboat Stranded

Posted by on Tuesday, August 30, 2016


A sailboat that is capable of sailing itself has run into a mechanical failure in the middle of Atlantic Ocean.

The team behind the boat says that there is nothing that they can do about it.

The boats name is Ada. It measures five-metres.

Every year more than 60 students from the University of British Columbia come together to design and build a fully autonomous sailboat, a Sailbot.

The team has taken on the challenge of creating a Fully Autonomous Sailboat capable of crossing the Atlantic Ocean.
