In this summer series of podcasts, we introduce the winners of our Teledyne Marine Academic Grant for 2020. This grant offers universities and institutions the opportunity to utilize several of our flagship products free of charge for up to a six-month period to support their research programs.
In this episode, we meet our final winner, Jonathan Wallen, a Ph.D. student in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Manoa in Hawaii. Jonathan's research is in the area of autonomous robotics and dynamical systems. In his current project, Jonathan is using a Teledyne Reson Hydrophone to dock an AUV to a floating wave energy converter.
You can find out more about Jonathan's work on AUV docking on his LinkedIn page and you can follow his efforts on the lab's official web site or Twitter account. You can also find more information about the Engineering program at the University of Hawaii on its official web site or follow along on Twitter.
