Underwater robots swim with the penguins

• Terrence Aym
Penguin populations are mysteriously diminishing, but if penguin biologist and president of the Polar Oceans Research Group, Bill Fraser, has his way schools of advanced underwater robots will discover the reason why. The autonomous, underwater robots are called "gliders." The bots are designed and programmed to assimilate pertinent data on the conditions of the various ocean environments they swim through as they follow in the wake of Adelie penguins. The bold project is being undertaken in the frigid waters encircling the bleak shores of Antarctica.
