• At the Centre for Robotics, students have developed the Kraken 3.0 a prototype UAV, a successor to the Kraken 2.0, an earlier model they created. The Kraken 3.0 can go as deep as 10 metres in a pool of water, just like a submarine.
  • Armed with strong sensors and cameras to detect its surroundings, the 1.3-metre-long under-water robot is a six-thruster model which can rotate itself in five directions.
  • Once an UAV is under water it has to take its own decisions. Therefore it has a higher level of intelligence than drones. A powerful on-board computer is part of the machine.
