MIT’s Undersea Robots Can Plan Their Own Missions

Engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have a plan to make ocean exploration easier: Let undersea robots make their own decisions.

Scientists use autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) to map the ocean floor, monitor the health of fisheries and study ocean habitats. However, writing computer codes that tell a robot how to accomplish each mission plan is incredibly time consuming at limits the capabilities of AUVs. But MIT’s Enterprise programming system gives AUVs “cognitiv
