Robotics have changed our lives in remarkable ways and when you consider the vastness of our oceans (which cover more than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface), it makes sense that robotics is being harnessed to conduct research and preserve our ocean health.

It’s for this reason that designing more fuel-efficient boats and shipping routes is vital to protecting our oceans and the marine organisms that call them “home”.
