Autonomous underwater vehicle on the Great Barrier Reef
February 07, 2014

The Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) conducts numerous expeditions around Australia using their Sirius autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). Here is a recent video captured by a GoPro mounted on the AUV while on a research expedition to the Great Barrier Reef with the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS). The voyage departed from Townsville on the RV Cape Ferguson and explored the central Great Barrier Reef.
