Researchers to Deploy Autonomous Underwater Vehicle to Study Tasmania’s Marine Environment

The University of Tasmania and CSIRO are working on the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS), a joint research project focused on investigating marine environment around Tasmania.

Tim Moltmann, Director of the Project, has stated that their state’s ocean habitats are not clearly identified. He mentioned that the IMOS technology will help researchers to completely analyze the marine environment of Tasmania. He added that they will utilize gliders for labeling and recording fish movements and they will also deploy a self-guided underwater vehicle to observe the seabed.

According to Peter Thompson, Head of Tas-IMOS, the high-end vehicle will offer exceptional access to new information for the researchers. He mentioned that in contrast to the other methods of data collection, robots offer reliable information. He added that they can control these vehicles using their computer and the robots work incessantly gathering marine information around Tasmania.

It was reported that the gathered information will be made available for both scientists and public by publishing the data on the internet.
