Autonomous Survey Vehicles Webinar: Autonomous Survey Vehicles: Where we are and where we are going
The idea of autonomy is not new. Remote controlled vehicles led to the first autonomous car prototypes in the early 1900’s, but over the past 20 years the dream of science fiction stories has become a functional reality. Autonomous Survey Vehicles (ASVs) are becoming increasingly more popular across multiple industries, from defense and research to fisheries and renewables. Technological advancements in shrinking hardware has made it possible for autonomous platforms to decrease in size and carry more sensors.

This presentation presented by Terrasond's Technical Manager, Christopher McHugh, will discuss how ASVs are used in the industry, the challenges they currently face and where they are going when they do. 
Tuesday January 12, 2021: 9:00am-10:00am

SUT-US Marine Autonomous Systems Conference
Source: National Oceanography Centre
Marine Autonomous Systems Technical Conference
The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) has hosted conferences focused on marine autonomy for more than a decade, next year the reach will be extended to the SUT-US Branch. The goal of the conference is to bring together energy industry executives and engineers, with marine technologists, government stakeholders, and research scientists, to provide a 1-day update on the history, status, uses and future of autonomous systems, sensors and AI, in the off­shore environment. The conference program will close with a panel discussion focused on future advances that are likely to be of value to the off­shore energy industry.

Wednesday March 31, 2021: 8:00am-4:00pm (CDT)
