Remotely Piloted Systems
This is media curation page for the PIRatE Lab's AARR Program.  We are developing practical, low cost programs to monitor resources in our coastal zone (the land near the ocean and the ocean near the land) with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs aka "drones") overhead and Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) in the water.  Check out our weekly blog!

CSUCI's unmanned systems research team blog
PIRatE Lab's insight:

Welcome to our curation page for PIRatE Lab's "AARR" work to better integrate cheap robotic technology into coastal monitoring and resource management.  Our consortium of faculty, professionals, and students are developing new tools to assess the health of our ecosystems and effectiveness of our management efforts in the coastal zone.  In addition of developing these instruments themselves, we are focused on developing and training the next generation of coastal scientists who will be professional, responsible  and adept users of these technologies.

 

Herein we collect a range of stories about:

 

- design, construction & operation of aerial & aquatic robots

- the future of unmanned & autonomous platforms

- examples of the application of these robots

- open source technologies

- the burgeoning maker space movement (a key tech driver)

- organizations supporting or promoting use of UAVs & ROVs

- efforts to professionalize Remotely Piloted Systems

- legal issues surrounding UAVs (aka drones)

- the wider impacts of UAV and ROV systems on our society

 

A few quick acronyms we often slip into:

 

AUV: Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

ROV: Remotely Operated Vehicle

RPS: Remotely Piloted Systems

UAS: Unmanned Aerial System

UAV: Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (aka "drones")

 

ESRM: Environmental Science and Resource Management

CSUCI: California State Univeristy Channel Islands
