Center for Marine Robotics

Groundbreaking research

Robotic systems promise to open the ocean to humans in new ways. Recent advances in robotics are improving efficiency, lowering costs, and reducing the risks of marine operations. Robots also allow scientists, industry, and the military to address problems in new ways, often producing solutions that cannot be achieved through conventional methods. MORE
