- Abstract -


Nala Heroes is a fully autonomous surface vehicle (ASV) designed by Team Barunastra ITS with a custom modular catamaran hull made for entering the 2018 International Roboboat Competition. Compared with previous boats made for entering the competition, the Nala Heroes is far more enhanced and unique. This paper focuses on discussing the competition strategy, the design creativity of the boat and system, and the experimental results that the team has obtained through months of research and practice. With the innovative features the Nala Heroes possesses, and the time spent to research and practice the vehicle, it is hoped that the Nala Heroes can successfully finish all the missions in the competition.
