A surfboard playing spies and rescue

In recent years, UAVs have evolved significantly due to technological progress. The group Liquid Robotics demonstrated his UMV (Unmanned Maritime Vehicle) a drone named Wave Water Gilder.

Wave Glider at first glance looks like a surfboard. Anything but trivial, it is a robotic vehicle capable of moving over the sea without a pilot on board. It can be controlled remotely from a web site. Its use is mainly the patrol, search and rescue. Wave Glider works by exploiting two renewable energy sources: sun and waves. It is equipped with solar panels that recharge the battery during the day and immersed fins that take advantage of tidal waves.

Equipped with sensors, the machine has an internet connection and satellite remote sends data to its owner.
