Tanaka presented our hardware-in-the-loop simulator that is used to diagnose sailboat behaviour, including that of the SeaLeon when it was launched during the 2018 MicroTransant competition.
Ehsan and Jean-Francois visited the National Research Canada Energy, Mining and Environment labs in Boucherville to observe the previous photo-acoustic sensor prototype first-hand. It was very insightful and we plan to build on this as part of the OFI Graduate Excellence Network.
We shared our research on an ASIC for measuring oceanic ambient noise and using power spectral density and other metrics to monitor environmental conditions. This work contributes to standardizing ocean sound as a crucial variable for climate change monitoring.
