IT FENDED off sharks, powered its way through gale-force storms and spent more than 365 days at sea before arriving in Hervey Bay.

No, it’s not Wilson, the unfortunate volleyball from Castaway.

It’s a wave-powered robot called a Wave Glider created by California ocean data company Liquid Robotics.

Known as the Papa Mau robot, the Wave Gilder arrived in Hervey Bay on December 6 after a 9000 nautical mile journey across the Pacific Ocean travelling from San Francisco to Hervey Bay.

It set off just over a year ago to collect and transmits scientific data in real-time from the most remote portions of the Pacific Ocean.

That included gathering data on waves, weather, salinity, water temperature and dissolved oxygen.

Wave Gliders use energy from the ocean’s waves to travel and also have solar panels for computing and navigating and powering its sensors.

The company’s second robot is also destined for Australia and is expected to arrive early in the new year.

Two more robots are headed for Japan but one has been damaged and will head to Hawaii to be repaired.
