Robotics: Lessons from the Sea

Wednesday, 9 March

3:00 pm - 3:30 pm (CST) / 09/mar/2022 09:00 pm - 09/mar/2022 09:30 pm

Robotics is playing an increasingly important role in human enterprises in the ocean. Although out-of-sight from the average citizen, these activities impact our day-to-day lives, as the ocean is increasingly important as a source of energy, a source of mineral resources and as a nexus of climate impacts. How will these enterprises investing in ocean infrastructure for energy and telecommunications be shaped by rapidly advancing robotic capabilities? What can be learned from the science community’s sophisticated ocean observation systems-of-systems approaches leveraging distributed autonomous systems? What lessons do marine robotics offer for other technological efforts in harsh, energy and communications challenged environments?
