Jyotika Virmani from Schmidt Ocean Institute spoke about how technology will be key to powering our exploration of the oceans in the coming years, and how SOI’s philanthropic model has contributed to powering this science in the past by allowing scientists to use facilities on board their ship and ROV.
First new seafloor map of the Ocean Decade collected in Australian waters
Schmidt Ocean Institute’s research vessel Falkor has collected the first public seafloor data of the New Year, as part of a global effort to map the entire ocean floor by 2030.
Autonomous Systems – Emerging & Future Technology Panel at OCEANS 2020
A panel session identified the challenges and opportunities in emerging technologies such as ocean sampling networks, underwater IOT, resident underwater vehicles, underwater human robot interaction, and ultra-long endurance systems.
SAUVC 2019 – A Volunteer’s Retrospective
A volunteer’s learning experience from the SAUVC event.
Robots Help Ocean Explorers Map the Sea Floor
To discover the ocean, map the seafloor and get an up-close view, ocean explorers deploy a range of powerful technologies, from ship-based sonar to autonomous underwater and remotely operated vehicles.
Student Autonomous Maritime Vehicle Competitions: International Coordination and Initial Benchmarking
The Autonomous Marine Vehicles Competition Committee is envisioned to be a forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas among all involved in sponsoring, managing and supporting autonomous maritime vehicle student competitions around the world.
Mother Nature Lends a Hand to Create More Efficient Underwater Robots
Robotic manta rays and turtles, like the MantaDroid and naro-tartaruga, may solve current limitations to AUVs as the next generation of marine robots copy biological designs to become more efficient, adaptable and maneuverable.
Motivation to Map: A Quest to Understand What the Earth Really Looks Like
Experts are pushing for better bathymetric charts of the ocean floor at a time when, technically, it’s already 100 percent mapped. What’s wrong with today’s maps, and what effects will improvements have?
In the Hunt for Ocean Treasures, Robots Lead the Way
Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE teams are building autonomous robots to map the seafloor and hunt for unknown signals in the hope of winning $7 million.
Going Deep to Go Far: How Dive Depth Impacts Seaglider Range
Seagliders are buoyancy driven Autonomous Underwater Vehicles used for long-term oceanographic observation. How does the depth of operation affect a Seaglider’s range?
