Who Are We?
Each year since its foundation in 2002, Eastern Edge Robotics has designed and constructed Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) to meet specifications set by the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) Center to model real-world ocean-workplace scenarios. Eastern Edge's members are post-secondary students from various backgrounds including ROV technology, several engineering disciplines, computer science, graphic arts and ocean instrumentation
Where Are We?
Located on the east coast of Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador is the 10th province of Canada. Eastern Edge is based in St. John's, the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador, at the Marine Institute. Home to one of the largest flume tanks in the world, the Marine Institute is a leader in the development of ocean and underwater technologies.
What We Do
Eastern Edge Robotics designs and manufactures state-of-the-art ROVs in-house. A majority of our mechanical and electrical systems are built from the ground up with raw materials and base components. We always strive to push boundaries on what we create, improving constantly from each year to the next. Besides our technology and engineering focus, Eastern Edge also volunteers at various local events to improve STEM and marine science and technology education.
2019 - Innovations for Inshore
The theme for the 2019 MATE International ROV Competition is Innovations for Inshore: ROV Operations in Rivers, Lakes, and Dams. With this theme, Eastern Edge will have to complete simulated tasks such as inspecting a hydroelectric dam, measuring water quality, and transporting wildlife. To complete these tasks, Eastern Edge has already completed a full preliminary ROV design for the 2019 Competition, which already holds promise to be our best ROV system to date. Stay tuned!
