Link Foundation Ocean Engineering and Instrumentation Fellowship Reports


Developed with the support from USDA-NIFA through the National Robotics Initiative (NRI 2.0), the Hybrid Aerial Underwater robotiCs System (HAUCS) framework is a Cyber-Physical System to provide automated monitoring of vital environmental metrics of each pond on aquaculture farms [1]. In particular, the HAUCS sensing platform is a hybrid robotic system consisting of an aerial drone and underwater sensing payload integrated through a winch and short-range wireless link. The platform has been successfully demonstrated on the farm for collecting fundamental pond data such as dissolved oxygen (DO) and temperature (Figure 1) [2].
