This ‘Swiss army knife’-style robo reef protector, the RangerBot Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, will provide reef managers, researchers and community groups extra ‘hands and eyes’ in the water to:

- monitor reef health indicators like coral bleaching and water quality, and
- map expansive underwater areas at scales not previously possible.
