Robots in Antarctica

April 16th, 2009

We have seen robots operate in various circumstances, but not yet in Antarctica. This might change as scientists are working on a new type of robot. There are problems in having a robot work efficiently in Antarctica as there are multiple challenges associated with the harsh weather and the terrain. It is not uncommon that the terrain cracks and even shifts and those are not all of the problems. That is why the robots I am talking about look like a snowmobile. They are also equipped with technology sensors, gauges, and cameras in order to guide them. The work on those robots did not finish yet, but it is even interesting to look how progress is made in this field. We might be seeing a lot more robots in our near future.
