Research Portfolio

WHOI's expertise in robotics spans from design and development to operation and deployment of mobile and moored robotic systems in complex marine environments. Institution engineers are skilled problem solvers who envision new ways to apply robotic technologies to unanswered questions in surface and sub-surface marine survey, monitoring, and intervention. They also work at the forefront of efforts to devise new ways to communicate and share information between machines and humans that are changing perceptions robotic operations.

The pages below highlight a diverse and growing number of projects by WHOI scientists and engineers that help advance the field of marine robotics across a wide range of fronts.
