New Approaches to Autonomous Exploration at the Costa Rican Shelf Break — Week 1 Video
Researchers are off the coast of Costa Rica, testing robots by integrating sensors, software, and mechanics to create underwater vehicles that can travel through unknown and potentially hazardous subsea regions.

Find out more on this week’s #AdvancingAutonomy video update!
