At land and at sea
Apart from just perserving the environment while out at sea, a similar concept can be applied to a land vehicle. This way, we will get to be as environmentally-friendly as we can be regardless of our location. The main aim is to stay as green as we can be especially when a large volume of work needs to be performed.

Re: 3G?
Quote... "The original plan was to use a satellite modem (using the (sic) Idridium network) to send infrequent (hourly) position reports, and check for mission updates. However, this idea was exchanged for a 3G modem designed for remote access to RS232-based equipment." ....??

Re: 3G?
Just read the article and it says satellite modem, not 3G modem.

3G?
Nice project.  But if it was using a 3G modem, how did it communicate in the middle of the Pacific ocean?  Not too many cell towers out there.....

Was the boat retrieved, and if so what had been the points of failure?  Mechanical, or water getting into the electronics?

Autonomous driving represents one of the most interesting fields of research in the electronics and automotive sectors. This interest is growing by means of projects like the “Roobopoli” which includes the design and testing of prototype autonomous cars having integrated microcontrollers.
The future of industry is represented by the massive utilization of IoT technology in realizing a more effective and reliable chain of production while maximizing the yield of industrial processes
The smart home is a new trend representing a concept that is quickly developing with an enormous electronic technology content
Autonomous driving is progressively becoming an important part of the future developments of e-cars making them more intelligent and safe. The aim is to increase the comfort of e-car users and to protect and make the driver aware in case of physiological issues while driving
The e-car is progressively evolving toward autonomous driving systems which can help the driver. In many cases this may help in dangerous situations like drowsiness or distress, being able to take control of the vehicle and to handle these kinds of situations.
