A duo of marine scientists successfully used the deep sea modular autonomous underwater vehicle REMUS 500 to investigate the behavior of marine life. This vehicle was proven to be able to make its own independent decisions about investigative missions in the oceans based on data collected from a number of sensors.

The REMUS 500 was pre-programmed to react in specific ways to certain kinds of sensory input derived from observing the motions of squid. By reacting to biological information, the vehicle is capable of adjusting its behavior accordingly in order to optimize academic investigations.

Ultimately, this autonomous underwater vehicle shows a whole lot of promise in the realm of autonomous marine studies which could be carried out to learn more about parts of the ocean that humans cannot easily access and study.
