DARPA is trying to create a “Ocean of Things”
3 February 2018 | Written by La redazione
The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is seeking proposals for “intelligent floats” with an ambitious goal: wire the world’s oceans with a network of sensors, capable of recording vast amounts of data about the environment that takes up 71 percent of our planet. The plan has been compared to the “internet of things” trend. Yet instead of linking refrigerators and thermostats to the internet, the “Ocean of Things” will bring everything from whale calls to water temperature online.
