Ecological interactions in Antarctic ecosystems

Antarctic and sub-Antarctic terrestrial ecosystems are dominated by mosses, lichens, invertebrates and some vascular plants. Marine vertebrates (penguins, seals, seabirds) also play an important role in driving terrestrial processes. All these species are influenced by many environmental and biotic factors, including interactions between species. Determining the impacts of climatic and environmental change on Antarctic and sub-Antarctic biodiversity requires greater understanding of these interactions.Ecological data on species interactions and the drivers of these interactions are an essential part of Antarctic and …

Safe autonomous driving through dense vegetation via advanced perception

One of the remaining challenges to achieve off-road autonomous navigation for mobile robots is the accurate evaluation of vegetated environments, to determine where a robot can safely drive through. To achieve this, robots may use extra sensory modalities compared to humans, such as RADARs that can penetrate through vegetation and see behind it what is not visible to the naked eye. Another option is to physically interact with the environment to 'clear the way'.
