Swarms of Small Autonomous Robots: A Future Vision for Ocean Observation - Perspectives on Ocean Science

8/12/2009; 58 minutes

One of the biggest challenges scientists face when studying the ocean is observing the interplay between physical processes and biology in fine detail. Join Jules Jaffe, a research oceanographer in Scripps' Marine Physical Laboratory, as he describes his latest scheme to uncover these processes with swarms of inexpensive, miniaturized robotic floats that travel with currents, sense the environment and report their findings back to us.
