This is a 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 subtidal Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) .  Enjoy!!

Open data board game

Open data board game | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it

Datopolis is a board game by Ellen Broad and Jeni Tennison from the Open Data Institute, and as you might expect, it promotes the use of open data. 


Datopolis is a board game about building things — services, websites, devices, apps and research — using closed and open data. It’s set in a town called Sheridan, which is gradually declining as shops close, teachers quit, hedgehogs go extinct and pollution rises. The tools that players build contribute to making Sheridan a healthier, wealthier, happier place to live.

PIRatE Labs insight:
For a limited time, you can buy the game on Game Crafter. You can also download the components from GitHub and print them yourself, because it’s all openly licensed, fittingly.

The remotely piloted aircraft world is full of technology created for civil purposes that end up being used by the military. A great example is the Scan Eagle originally a fishing tool.

Monterey Bay Aquarium testing the waters with open source camera

Monterey Bay Aquarium testing the waters with open source camera | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
Engineers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute designed a simple underwater camera and lighting system that is made mostly of hardware store materials. And all for $3,000. Most oceanographic camera systems cost $5,000 to $20,000 and require ships and cranes to carry the heavy equipment.
