Waldo to Seek Oil in Loop Current


Mote Marine Laboratory will be launching an AUV from a boat 15 miles off Key West today. Waldo can detect oil and chemicals and will seek out residue in the Loop Current. It will then collect the data and send it to researchers via satellite. Pay attention, BP. This is the second bot that Mote has sent out and there are plans for a third to be launched off SW Florida. It's somewhat comforting to see active involvement without the bureaucracy.
