The Robotic Shark Detector

Surfers may unwillingly be the first to know when a great white shark approaches the shore, but it’s now the full-time job of a robotic surfer to keep tabs on these aquatic predators. Researchers at Stanford University have enlisted a Wave Glider robot in their efforts to track the migratory patterns of great white sharks off the California coast, near San Francisco. They’re bringing that data into the non-scientist’s pocket with a shark-tracking iPhone app to raise awareness for their work.
