ROBO-BOAT FOR OCEAN DATA COLLECTION

Remotely operable oceanic surface vehicles are widely used for survey and monitoring of conditions at sea and measurement of oceanographic parameters. The main objective of this platform is used for remote rapid data collection at sea. This platform is capable of working in rough sea environments and climatic conditions with provision to mount oceanographic sensors. Low power and high endurance components are used for control and data acquisition. Sea Surface Robo-Boat is a mobile platform which gives us added advantage of improved range and data acquisition capabilities which helps us to validate the data collected from moored buoy systems after deployment. The control of the vehicle is done with the help of 4 channel 2.4GHz transmitter and receiver module. The Robo Boat can be equipped with a suite of sensors for measurement of ocean surface and upper ocean parameters.
