This talk will have a look at maritime related robots and projects. It is not all that difficult and expensive - and there are truly still dragons to find!

With this talk I want to expand the attention from air and land vehicles to maritime robotics and other maritime projects. Surface and underwater vehicles are challenging: Waterproofing is vital, communication is restricted and doesn't work the way we are used to, and weight is a factor that needs more consideration than usually (either to avoid sinking or to achieve it...). Still discovering this area myself, I'm planning to cover interesting challenges, surprising solutions, the differences in sensing and actuation, exciting projects, and the responsibility that comes with building robots for the sea.
