NVIDIA Jetson-Powered CUREE Robot Dives Deep to Gather Data on Reefs and Sea Creatures

NVIDIA Jetson-Powered CUREE Robot Dives Deep to Gather Data on Reefs and Sea Creatures

NVIDIA Jetson CUREE Robot Reefs Sea Creatures
The NVIDIA Jetson-powered CUREE robot, developed by researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Autonomous Robotics and Perception Laboratory (WARPLab) and MIT, dives deep to study coral reefs as well as their ecosystems. CUREE (Curious Underwater Robot for Ecosystem Exploration) can collect visual, audio, and other environmental data alongside divers to help them better understand the human impact on reefs and the sea life around them.



CUREE runs on an NVIDIA Jetson-enabled edge AI to build 3D models of reefs and to track creatures, along with plant life. It’s capable of running models to navigate and collect data autonomously. The robot comes equipped with four forward-facing cameras, four hydrophones for underwater audio capture, depth sensors and inertial measurement unit sensors.

The problem is that, underwater, the snapping shrimps are loud. If only we could figure out an algorithm to remove the effects of sounds of snapping shrimps from audio, but at the moment we don’t have a good solution. We manually drive the vehicle until we see an animal that we want to track, and then we click on it and have the semi-supervised tracker take over from there,” said Yogesh Girdhar, an associate scientist at WHOI, who leads WARPLab.

UNSW Sydney’s Sunswift 7 is currently the world’s fastest solar electric car over 1000km and NVIDIA Jetson AI helps give it an edge across its 100 automotive monitoring / power management systems. It recently won the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (Cruiser Class) from Darwin to Adelaide.



NVIDIA Jetson AI can also determine whether it should drive faster or slower based on weather forecasts. For example, Sunswift 7 will alert the driver to go faster if rain is expected later in the day when conditions would force the car to slow down. The team built nearly 60 design iterations to improve the vehicle’s aerodynamics, using computational fluid dynamics modeling and simulations to analyze each version.

It’s a completely different proposition to say we can use the least amount of energy and arrive in Adelaide before anybody else, but crossing the line first is just about bragging rights. Every single team member needs to understand what they’re doing and what their role is on the team and perform at the very best during those five-and-a-half days,” said Richard Hopkins, project manager at Sunswift and a UNSW professor.
