The microUSV is a small, open source unmanned surface vehicle (USV) designed as low cost marine robotics research platform for laboratory environments. Each unit costs approximately \\$500 Canadian dollars and measures 230mm x 89mm x 121mm making them ideal for swarm robotics. To the best of our knowledge, there are no existing small and low cost off-the-shelf solutions for this kind of research. This wiki will provide a step-by-step guide on how to assemble and test a microUSV.
