GRASP / Drexel Seminar: Hanumant Singh, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, “Bipolar Robotics: Exploring the Arctic and Antarctic”

January 30, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Arctic and Antarctic remain one of least explored parts of the
world’s oceans. In this talk we look at efforts over the last decade to explore areas under-ice
which have traditionally been difficult to access. The focus of the talk will be on the robots,
the role of communications over low bandwidth acoustic links, and navigation and mapping
methodologies. This is all within the context of real data collected on several expeditions to the
Arctic and Antarctic.
