Congratulations to team Adelaide Bio AUV from Australia for winning the 2019 Ericsson Innovation Awards competition for its approach to limiting climate change through autonomous underwater vehicles.
Dr. Helena Wiklund, biologist at Gothenburg University and the National History Museum in London explains the jury’s motivation behind this year’s winning team: “The theme of this year’s Ericsson Innovation Awards is to dive deeper and take inspiration from the oceans, and team Adelaide Bio-AUV does exactly that. They have taken a marine animal adaptation and evolved that into an autonomous product with multiple user applications. We in the jury look forward seeing it in action”. Read more here.
