Autonomous Wave Gliders Document Hawaiian Volcano

On May 3, 2018 the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii erupted. Over the following months, Liquid Robotics Wave Gliders were deployed to capture live ocean data close to where lava was flowing into the ocean from the volcano. By using unmanned technology, scientists had the rare opportunity to study the effects of the lava entering the ocean, the plume it creates

MIT Releases Swimming Robotic Fish Made of Silicone Rubber

The Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT unveiled a soft robotic fish, “SoFi”. The robot is intended to photograph rare marine organisms up close by fitting into the crowd of animals underwater, mimicking the motions of swimming fish. According to the report at MIT News, “The entire back half of the fish is made of silicone rubber and flexible plastic, and several
