Stanford AI Grads Launch Low(ish)-Cost Underwater Robot

IEEE Spectrum Robotics

SeaDrone, the underwater robot coming out of a new company founded by two Stanford AI lab veterans, is aiming to make fish farming a lot easier--particularly for smaller aquaculture operations--by making underwater inspection cheaper and easier. The ocean ROV's story is not an unusual one for Silicon Valley: two Stanford students meet over a lab bench, get an idea that something they'd been tinkering around with for their themselves could be turned into a product and the basis of a company. It's a story Silicon Valley loves. Eduardo Moreno met Shuyun Chung in the Stanford AI lab in 2013. Moreno, in the thick of his studies for a master's degree in mechanical engineering, was working on underwater robot hardware in collaboration with King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia.

Manta ray inspires underwater robot

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

Singapore-based researchers have built an underwater robot that looks and swims like a manta ray, using only single motors and flexible fins to propel it through water in a way uncannily like its biological cousin.

US Navy tests underwater robots that recharge by eating fish faeces

New Scientist

Underwater robots could get their batteries recharged by munching the sea floor. A device created by the US Navy extracts electrical energy from layers of fish faeces and other organic matter to provide an endless source of power. All underwater devices have a fundamental limitation – battery life. They are incredibly useful for exploring and monitoring the depths, but once their power reserves start to run low there's no choice but to bring them to the surface or abandon them.
