Wenn Roboter schwimmen gehen ...

Unter dieses Motto könnte man die "10th annual International Autonomous Underwater Vehicle competition" stellen. Und dabei hatte ein Roboter die "Flossen" vorne, dessen Software auf dem Microsoft Robotics Studio basiert.

"The SubjuGator uses a single-board Intel Core 2 Duo based computer running the Windows XP provides processing power necessary for monitoring and controlling all systems. The behavior of SubjuGator is controlled with Microsoft Robotics Studio framework communicating with a network of intelligent sensors. The sensor systems include cameras, hydrophones, a Doppler Velocity Log, a digital compass, altimeter, and internal environment monitor sensors. The submarine also makes use of custom designed motor controllers with current feedback monitoring and other peripherals." (Dr.Dobb's Portal )
