Northeastern Professor’s Robotic Boats Are Exploring the Arctic

Singh_GBH_robotics story

ECE Professor Hanumant Singh and his work on robotics designed to gather data on glaciers, were featured on WGBH Morning Edition, titled “A Northeastern Professor’s Robotic Boats are Exploring the Arctic.” Singh’s robotic boats take surface measurements of Artic glaciers, a job that would be difficult and dangerous for humans. On a recent expedition off the coast of Norway, the robotics collected data that showed daily and hourly changes of glaciers.

Singh was also featured on TheWorld’s podcast “Using a robot to measure the impact of climate change.”
