Earlier this week, Liquid Robotics unveiled the latest in its line of "Wave Glider" autonomous aquatic craft, due to ship in the third quarter, billing it as "the world’s first hybrid wave and solar propelled unmanned ocean robot." In addition to its energy harvesting marvels, the 9.5-foot, Wave Glider SV3 is also notable for being the first Linux-powered Wave Glider. With its Linux- and Java-based Regulus operating system, the floating robot is far more adept at autonomous navigation than the Wave Glider SV2, and can now coordinate with its siblings in fleet operations.
