Marine robots are now operating in some of the most challenging environments on Earth, including under ice and in the deepest parts of the ocean, and underpin a variety of science, industry and defence applications.

This talk will highlight new advances in marine robotics, including collaborative Innovate UK projects between ASV Global and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) that involve the infamous ‘Boaty McBoatface’!

Join us for a fascinating insight into these disruptive technologies by Dan Hook (Managing Director, ASV Global) and Prof Russell Wynn (Chief Scientist, Marine Autonomous and Robotic Systems, NOC).
