Who we are

We are mostly Marine Science and Biology majors learning some useful electronics, robotics, and programming skills through hands-on participation in some way-cool projects, most of which are related to marine science research and/or education.

What we do

We design and build custom robots and instrumentation systems for use in our own student research projects or to assist schools, agencies, and community organizations with ecosystem monitoring, research, and education. Most of our projects are marine-science based and focused in the Monterey Bay region, but we also work on the occasional terrestrial project and have land and sea collaborations across the country and around the world.

Our Specialties

  • Remotely-operated underwater vehicles (ROVs)
  • Web-based telepresence in remote habitats
  • Custom camera and sensor systems for ecosystem monitoring
  • Wildlife & fish surveillance
