From Romeo & Juliet to OceanOnek; Deep-Sea Robotic Exploration
OceanOnek is a robotic diver with a high degree of autonomy for physical interaction with the environment while connected to a human expert through an intuitive interface. The robot was recently deployed in several archeological expeditions in the Mediterranean with the ability to reach 1,000 meters. The robot allows humans to distance themselves physically from dangerous and unreachable spaces while still connecting their skills, intuition, and experience to the task.
