Ocean Robot Boats

Date: 1/7/2014

The National Oceanography Center (NOC) purchased two oceangoing unmanned surface vehicles designed for long endurance scientific research.
They were developed as part of a £1million initiative to produce rugged,
reliable marine autonomous systems to gather data from the open ocean
over periods of several months. The robot boats harvest energy from the
environment. One is powered by wave energy, the other is driven by wind
power. Both boats use solar energy to power instruments.
