We live on planet ocean – 71% of this planet is covered by water, yet most drone companies only focus on terrestrial applications. Through their Drones for Whale Research Program, Ocean Alliance has demonstrated that there are enormous opportunities to use drones for marine wildlife conservation. Consider that the ten largest wildlife NGO’s spend more than $2.5 billion annually on wildlife conservation – and it is estimated that over $76 billion is spent annually to help conserve biodiversity. SnotBot® is a modified consumer drone that flies through the blow of a whale and collects exhaled “snot” on petri dishes. This…
We look forward to seeing you at the Robotica UAS Summit! The light is at the end of the tunnel for the COVID-19 pandemic. We have all been locked down for over 10 months, practicing social/physical distancing, we are all social beings and have become “Zoom” natives. It’s great to see that so many vaccine candidates have been developed and ‘printed’ globally, and are now being actively administered. Soon the worst of the pandemic will be behind us. Until then we have moved to virtual meetings. The virtual meetings have been really good, and offered face-to-face interactions and networking opportunities.…
Thank you for joining AUVSI D.C. and AUVSI New England members and friends to learn about experiences at the cutting edge of unmanned autonomous vehicle systems. We heard about Advanced Air Mobility, Advanced Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) and Counter-UAS (threats). Interns at three organizations: Raytheon, The Aerospace Corporation, and the Kostas Research Institute shared their experiences, highlight what they learned and discussed issues. It was a riveting and exciting session. The future leaders (interns) sharing their experiences: Caitlin Jung Discussion Topic: Experiences in Advanced Air Mobility Internship experience at: Raytheon School: Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) Major: Computer Science, …
Amy Underwood, a senior roboticist at Square Robot discusses how the company is using AUVs to revolutionize the above-ground, petrochemical storage tank inspection industry. The presentation covers the development of the company’s robotic platform as well as the logistics and complexities of deploying an AUV to perform non destructive testing (NDT) inspections of the internals of liquid-filled storage tanks. The discussion focused on some of the challenges of putting a robot into a hazardous location.

As part of the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the economy was “shut-down”, we have all been locked down and practicing social/physical distancing. Now we all must wear masks to prevent asymptomatic contamination. We have started to open up the economy, noting that we may experience a second wave of the virus. AUVSI New England members are naturally social and enjoy getting together to discuss important topics. For the time being, we are all having to engage virtually. We have prepared a number of activities for the next few weeks and months. These include: Unmanned Insight, September 24th, virtual:…
The AUVSI New England chapter hosted part of its 2020 Autonomous Vehicle Summit (AVS) a webinar was titled "Building AI You can Trust for Autonomous Vehicles" and featured Prof Alex Wong, Chief Scientist at DarwinAI in Waterloo Canada, and fittingly was sponsored by the Consulate General of Canada in Boston". Prof. Wong went into detail about DarwinAI's explainable AI engine known as Inquisitor, and is based on Explainable Design Automation.
