Presentation Summary

The application of computerized machines to perform complex tasks autonomously and safely for humans is available in submarine piloting. The costs and risks involved for manned submarines are very high, and often impractical. The advancement of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV’s) or robotic submarines has been significant, and with these advancements come many new opportunities, including exploring areas of the ocean that have never been seen before.

This presentation by Shane Jensen P.Eng and Taylor Moore P.Eng of International Submarine Engineering (ISE) here in Port Coquitlam, BC touched on where these vehicles are being used, mainly focussing on AUV operations and the various applications of technology in the industry.
