No we’re not talking about staying at home and diving in a virtual world, where you never get wet!
Here at PADI we always have our ears to the ground. As well as monitoring research and developments in recreational and technical diving we also love to hear about other areas of diving. CADDY is an interesting research project being carried out by the scientific and commercial diving communities.
CADDY is a project to develop a sophisticated robot buddy to assist divers working underwater.
This raises some interesting questions for the future of diver training.
How could this kind of technology be used to improve diver safety during training dives?
What features would be needed on a similar tool for recreational divers and/or instructors?
We’d love to hear your comments.
