Seaglider The robot, Seaglider by iRobot, is now in the process of working in the collection of data in the Gulf of Mexico, in the ecological disaster zone caused by the BP oil leak. Its main mission, says iRobot, is to pinpoint the oil slicks. The project is led in collaboration with the Department of Marine Science at the University of Southern Mississippi. Seaglider can stay almost 10 consecutive months in deep waters. The robot can descend to a depth of 1000 meters (3290 feet). It's able to model the oil slicks in 3D, take the water's temperature, its salinity and other components.
