The Year of CoCoRo Video #15/52: TRAILER LilyCam in a wild river

April 12, 2015

TYOC 15 52 TRAILER LilyCam in a wild river   YouTube

The EU-funded Collective Cognitive Robotics (CoCoRo) project has built a swarm of 41 autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) that show collective cognition. Throughout 2015 – The Year of CoCoRo – we will be uploading a new weekly video detailing the latest stage in its development. In this video, we take Lily-Cam into rough water.

Austria is home not only to beautiful lakes, it also has wild rivers and creeks. After “Lily-Cam” did its job in the lakes, we threw it also into a fast whitewater river. We were lucky to catch it downriver after some minutes and the robot survived this adventure. However, our engineers, who have also to constantly maintain and repair the robots, didn’t like the movie. ;-)

To learn more about the project, see this introductory post, or check out all the videos from the Year of CoCoRo on Robohub.
