KAUST-born robotic avatar sets new era for undersea archaeology

In 2015, an extensive archaeological programme led by the French Ministry of Culture and the University of Montpellier set up a scientific collaboration with Khaled Nabil Salama, Professor from CEMSE Division and co-worker Professor Christian R. Voolstra, from the KAUST Red Sea Research Center, in partnership with Stanford University and Meka Robotics, in California, to develop Ocean One, an agile avatar that affords immediate and haptic-visual interaction – the process of recognizing objects through touch - in the ocean environment at depths greater than 50m.
