In the underwater robotics project our objective is to develop technologies and methods for autonomous underwater exploration and observation. We are developing a submersible robot, Kambara. This autonomous underwater vehicle will have on-board sensing and computing resources. With low-level reflexive control and high-level intelligent behaviours, it will autonomously perform tasks underwater.

Thanks for your help naming our AUV! We had many interesting suggestions. We have selected "Kambara" which is an aboriginal word originating in northeastern Australia and meaning crocodile.
