Watch: An underwater internet of things

To investigate the unexplored oceans covering most our planet, researchers aim to build an underwater network of interconnected sensors that send data to the surface; — an underwater “internet of things.”  MIT researchers could use a battery-free underwater communication system that uses near-zero power to transmit sensor data.

Watch: Saildrone, the first unmanned system circumnavigates Antarctica

Saildrone, a seven-metre long, wind-powered unmanned surface vehicle (USV) is the first unmanned system to circumnavigate Antarctica. The vehicle, also called SD 1020, had climate-grade sensors installed, and had gathered data in previously unchartered waters, providing an additional insight into ocean and climate processes.
