The #AdaptiveRobotics expedition is different from many research cruises in that the results will not simply be data such as samples, maps, or measurements. Instead, the larger goal is to demonstrate how large volumes of information can be efficiently viewed and interpreted as part of a daily operational workflow, allowing for better informed decision-making and increasing the scientific value of an at-sea expedition. The underwater robots used will not be just mindless gathers of data, but will make important decisions based on an increased awareness of their surroundings.

Find out more how these robots are exploring #methane seeps and what they are discovering in this video update.
