Underwater robots "Nanins" for clean water
In the near future, gliding underwater robots like the “Nanins”, designed and developed at the lab of Prof. Roland Siegwart, could go deep underwater to collect water quality data with minimal energy use. The data from onboard sensors enables water pollution to be determined and addressed efficiently. Stefan Bertschi and Raghav Khanna visited India with the Nanins to conduct a workshop on underwater gliding for water quality monitoring.
