BBC Radio 4’s Inside Science features AutoNaut in icy conditions

Listen here to the BBC programme (from 17 minutes in) where Hannah Fisher goes to see an AutoNaut unmanned automated vessel being tested in icy conditions.

The remotely-operated vessel will be used to explore uncharted waters around Antarctic ice sheets to collect data on ice-melt and sea-level rise, but first it needs to have a coating that won’t ice up.
