Solar-Powered Robot Sailboat Aims For World Record

f you’ve never been on a sailboat, it might seem like the ultimate form of leisurely transportation: nothing but the waves, sunshine, and ocean breezes to speed you along your journey. The reality is that a sail boat requires constant input from its human crew in order to travel in a safe, orderly manner. Without a crew to make adjustments to the sails and rudder, a lazy trip on the water could turn disastrous in a hurry.

But what if the boat could make these adjustments all on its own? A research team from the Austrian Society for Innovative Computer Sciences (INNOC) has developed a fully autonomous, unmanned sailing boat that aims to break the current record for longest journey without a crew.
