The WIRD2 project
This project shows and teaches the fundamental understanding and implementation of a practical robotic system through defining a scientifically sustainability-exploration-task, eg. the investigation of the water quality, water noise pollution, water temperature etc. in the lakes around Sligo, Ireland and collect research data using this robot system.
We are going to improve and the OPEN ROV robot to conclude the research defined above. We are going to add some extra sensors to measure the water quality and make an user interface in virtual reality. Then it looks like the users are acutally in the robot instead of looking at the computer screen.
