RiverWatch: Marsupial Robotic Team

The RiverWatch project pairs an autonomous boat with an on-board hexacopter to monitor river environments. The team calls the marine-to-air duo "marsupial" because the hexacopter is able to use the boat as a "pouch". The operation is powered by solar energy allowing it to function autonomously for long periods.
