features Any Kukulya and Kara Dodge
Long-range autonomous underwater vehicles are being engineered to help with natural disaster response.
After several years, Kara Dodge began to do other work with turtles, in particular a “TurtleCam” project with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution engineer Amy Kukulya. The project involved tagging and tailing turtles with autonomous underwater vehicles to study diving behavior, eating habits, and assess ways to reduce entanglements.
Entrepreneurs from around the world gathered at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution last week to hear about and discuss marine robotics and autonomous underwater vehicles.
