The robot, called Mercury, is actually built by Liquid Robotics, an ocean data service provider and developer of the Wave Glider. Liquid Robotics says that Mercury battled through Hurricane Sandy and successfully piloted through winds up to 70 knots while transmitting weather data in real time.

Mercury’s sensors was able to gather a "dramatic” data from the surface of the ocean as Sandy neared landfall, with the barometric pressure of over 54.3 mbars to a low of 946 mbars.

"Mercury now joins the fleet of other Wave Gliders that have come through Category I hurricanes to successfully fulfill their missions,” said Dr. Edward Lu, chief of innovative applications for Liquid Robotics. "This is a testament to our robust and reliable technology ... Read more »
