Is it dark?
Wally's camera is always on, but the lights are only illumated when researchers in Europe need to drive Wally or make visual observations. This typically occurs during the daytime in Europe, which is 8 - 10 hours ahead of the Pacific Time Zone. If it is noon in Victoria then it is 8:00 PM in Bremen, Germany.
Who Controls Wally?
Wally the Crawler is one of 2 remotely operated deep-sea crawlers helping researchers study the gas hydrates outcrops in Barkley Canyon. These crawlers are designed, developed and operated by scientists and technicians at Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany.
