All progress on this planet is based on the White man's magic. I love these autonomous little robots. I think, with our technology and animals and our creativity we can do wild, wild things. Jan]

The Bluebottle uncrewed vessels can operate autonomously at sea

Australia is deploying a fleet of uncrewed robot boats to patrol its waters and monitor weather and wildlife. They will also flag boats potentially transporting asylum seekers, a plan that has concerned human rights groups.

The 5-metre-long vessels, known as Bluebottles after an Australian jellyfish, look like miniature sailing yachts. They use a combination of wind, wave and solar power to maintain a steady 5-knot speed in all conditions.
