BRIDGES Project: Europe’s Deepest Autonomous Robot Glider to be Developed

BRIDGES (Bringing together Research and Industry for the Development of Glider Environmental Services) is four year project. 19 partners from across Europe have come together to develop Europe’s first ultra-deep-sea robot glider. This glider will be capable of sampling the ocean autonomously at depths of 5000m, and maybe more in the future, for up to […]

NUSwan: Singapore is using Swan Robots to Monitor Water Quality

NUSwan: Singapore is using Swan Robots to Monitor Water Quality

Maintaining water quality, especially in urbanized landscapes, is highly challenging since water bodies are exposed to varying sources of pollutants from urban run-offs and industries. Simultaneously, active recreational use of these water bodies promotes urban livability in the cities that requires maintenance of clean water and aesthetically pleasing surroundings. Several methods and protocols in monitoring […]

Buoyant Rover: NASA Tested Under Ice Rover for Exploration

Buoyant Rover: NASA Tested Under Ice Rover for Exploration

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory developed a robot called the Buoyant Rover for Under Ice Exploration (BRUIE), this rover would normally float and have wheels. Its wheels would roll along on the underside of ice, as if the ice were the ground. Operating underwater, the rover would take images and collect other data to help scientists […]
