My friend Shilpa – colleague from the AI Lab at Texas – is in Antarctica, as part of an expedition to map out a lake bed using a mobile robot. She is maintaining a blog here. I look forward to seeing how it all turns out.
The pictures are awesome. I am sure the visuals do not convey the true sense of the cold and the winds, but everyone seems very excited in her pictures.
Cool stuff… almost convinces me to get more involved with field robotics and go to some such place myself 😉
