Meet Dawson - Computer Vision Team Member

Dawson Mercer is in the accelerated software development program at CNA. He enjoys engineering because... "I like that as you progress in solving the task at hand, often times smaller problems arise and you have to learn new skills along the way in order to solve a larger problem. You end up finishing a project learning way more than you expected which will then help you solve more problems in the future. "

He's currently working on the computer vision system of the AUV to detect and navigate through gates.

I was attracted to MUN RoboSub as this project helps to apply some of the things I'm learning in school to real world situations. A group of students getting together in their free time to work on problems relating to their field of study and problems they're most enthusiastic about is very motivating and inspiring.
