Robotics and autonomous systems are championed as one of the UK government’s ‘Eight Great Technologies’. The National Oceanography Centre is committed to maximising this technology to further ocean science and has purchased a fleet of innovative autonomous surface vehicles, each with different specifications and capabilities. The fleet – including custom-designed vessels — was put through its paces late last year in an ambitious project. The firs...

Interesting... Take care of the information you are using, even if you quote 'reliable' services like Bloomsberg or Forbes. The source of many statistics is vague.

This was a surprise - a very historical hotel just outside the centre. The decoration makes you feel to be in a palace. The restaurant is beautiful and offers a range of dishes - and friendly service. The rooms are decorated in style however this means that the bathroom (of the room I stayed in) had a bit of old-fashioned looks and feel compared to nowadays standards. Breakfast options are great and offer a powerful start of the day. Defenitely will look at this hotel for a next stay in Plymouth.

Being a fan of Premier Inn hotels, I had a stopover between arrival with an evening flight and the morning train to continue the journey. So arrival after 10PM and leaving 630AM, just to enjoy the great beds and comfortable room, and the wifi to catch up on mails & communications. What you need is there - and it's good.
