Over the past year a group of 4 students (Maya Anuraj, Brooke Moore, Raj Patel, and Chuck Taylor) in the Oceans Technology program at the Nova Scotia Community College worked on a project to design and build a small winch system for sensor deployment on AMOS. They made a lot of good progress, although their school year was unfortunately shortened due to Covid-19 in March. You can read about their project here. Many thanks to instructors Stephane Kirchoff and Alfred White for leading the students in their work!

In Nature Robotics attended the Marine Renewables Canada information session for "Opportunities in Offshore Wind & Tidal Energy" at 333 Water Street, Saint John, New Brunswick.
AMOS was one of the project showcases in the January 2020 issue (#89) of the MagPi magazine, the official magazine of the Raspberry Pi. To download a full copy of the issue, please visit: https://magpi.raspberrypi.org/
Sadly the prices of electronics and other supplies used to make AMOS robots have increased significantly over the last couple of years. This means that we have had to increase our prices in our online store somewhat, although we still feel that our robots are competitively priced and great value for the money. As always, if you would like a custom quote, please contact us!
