Vessels

Sofian writes:

Vessels is an outdoor robotic installation consisting of groups of nocturnal autonomous water vehicles. Their collective, emergent behaviour signifies unseen characteristics of their immediate environment.

During the day, the vehicles remain inactive as they gather and store radiant energy from the sun. At night, they become active upon when they collect, store and interpret data from various environmental conditions such as water quality, air quality, temperature, ambient light, and sound.

  1. These are cool and all, however, I am interested in how they function and collect information about water quality, air quality, temperature, etc… more as a research device. The video, though cool, shows some fans and color LED’s. I can find these anywhere on the web. _details_ please! I would like to build something like this that is practical and could be used in an environment with a lot of rivers/streams/lakes, etc… to, in-real-time, report on environmental water conditions.
