WALLY, THE INTERNET-CONTROLLED DEEP-SEA CRAWLERResearch the seafloor online
Wally, the deep-sea robot, was developed by OceanLab at Jacobs University Bremen. It is part of a deep-sea observatory that was developed by the IRCCM research association for the exploration of the geology and ecology of the seafloor and for earthquake monitoring or monitoring of offshore systems in the natural oil and natural gas industries.
It was given its name by Canadian scientists who named him after the Disney character Wall-E. The robot is equipped with a webcam for optical orientation and a measurement system for temperature, pressure, currents, salt content, methane concentration and turbidity.
