3d-prototypeA team of researchers at the National University of Singapore (NUS) has developed a robot fish that mimics the movements of a carp. Since it can be programmed to perform specific functions, this autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) could be used for various applications, ranging form underwater archaeology and environment monitoring, to military activities and placement… »

osaka-robot-fishWe already wrote about several projects related to robots inspired by fish as the MIT robot fish from or the fish robots contracted to search for pollutants in the waters. The robotic fish, special because it uses only a fraction of energy needed to swim through the water, is being developed by the Faculty of… »

robofishA team of MIT researchers has built a school of swimming robo-fish that slip through the water just as gracefully as the real ones, but not quite as fast. Real fish are exquisitely adapted to moving through their watery environment, and can swim as fast as 10 times their body length per second. So far,… »

robot-fish.jpgA number of robotic fish are going to be used in an experiment in the port of Gijon in Spain in order to evaluate how effectively and cost-efficiently they can detect water pollution. The carp-shaped robots are part of a three-year research project of Huosheng Hu and his robotics team at the School of Computer… »
