The Story of Autosub
Sea Creature Encounter - Eastern North Atlantic
Autosub6000 took part in this Ecological Sampling and Surveying cruise utilising a new vehicle-mounted photographic system designed by the AUV team. The photographic system consisted of twin camera and flash units, one oblique forward-looking the other vertical, and a dedicated logging processor.
Autosub encountered a diverse variety of wildlife during its numerous dives, photographing a selection of benthic invertebrates and demersal fish. It also captured images of litter such as plastic bags, bottles and metal cans discarded on the seabed.
