Science Made Public Talk @ WHOI Redfield Auditorium
August 5, 2014 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
“Autonomous Underwater Robots: How They Work” with Dana Yoerger, Ocean Engineer
Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) like WHOI’s REMUS, Sentry, and SeaBED are important tools used to explore the ocean. They are controlled by on-board computers and powered by internal batteries; they keep track of their own motions and ensure that their sensors are operating properly. Learn about the science and engineering that goes into creating vehicles that can carry out missions with little or no help from people.
