The Wave Glider and Shark Net App

This video is of the launching of one of the newest scientific research robots.

Although the Wave Glider has been around for a while, the newest version is being used to track electronically tagged marine animals. It is especially renowned for its launch during Shark Week, and it is now tracking Great White sharks as well.

The Wave Glider is an autonomously functioning robot, powered with solar panels and swimming in the water fluently and tracking the depths of the ocean below it. In fact, the Wave Glider’s data can be viewed on an iOS app called the Shark Net, giving data, biographies, and history of a variety of tagged sharks.
