Autonomous robots are being increasingly used in contexts humans would find dangerous or work-intensive — we’ve already seen underwater robots monitoring local water pollution. Autonomous Marine Systems wants to scale the technology up to a global oceanic scale for a new era of marine research. AMS have developed small, autonomous marine vessels called Datamarans, capable of self-righting when navigating changeable sea conditions. Described as ‘self-deploying buoys’, the vessels are equipped with low power computers and autonomous navigational machinery, and are able to station-keep and return to base upon mission completion. Using the preexisting Iridium satellite network, fleets of Datamarans are…
