Latest Version of Wave Glider Ocean Robots Released

Winning the future is for the private sector, not government


Liquid Robotics is revolutionizing our understanding of the oceans with its unmanned sensor robots. And today, the company is announcing a new version, dubbed the Wave Glider SV3, with advanced capabilities such as a hybrid propulsion system.

Roger Hine, chief technology officer at Liquid Robotics, told VentureBeat the new model can use solar power for propulsion. The earlier models used wave energy for propulsion and solar power for sensors and communications. The new solar cells for the robot are 50 percent more efficient, allowing them to power the propulsion system.
