Delve deeper into the ocean with drones | Electric Vehicles Research

With the help of drones, areas of the ocean which have previously proved challenging to access are now within reach. Treacherous arctic conditions make exploration from a boat in these remote areas difficult, even for the most experienced researchers. Deploying drones enables researchers to capture more accurate, reliable data, in a safer and more cost-efficient way. Intel are championing the use of drones in marine research and working in partnership with Parley for the Oceans and Oceans Alliance they are using 'Snotbot' drones to analyse the condition of whales and the environment. The drones collect spout water from whales in oceans around the world to help researchers better understand the rich biological data that whale snot holds, including DNA, stress and pregnancy hormones, viruses, bacteria and toxins. Drones are also a critical aspect of offshore oil and gas deve...
