Robotic fish designed to study ‘secrets’ of marine life

MASSACHUSETTS: An interesting video released by the MIT (Massachusetts institute of technology) computer science and artificial intelligence laboratory (CSAIL) shows a unique aquatic robot named SoFi, designed to study marine life in depth. It is designed to swim naturally alongside other fish in open water and spy on them without raising suspicions or disturbing their natural habitat. The un-tethered robot can use its camera to record behaviors of anything from sharks and whales to schools of tiny damselfish. The silicon…

MantaDroid: Aquatic robot swims like the manta ray fish

SINGAPORE: Researchers have created MantaDroid, an aquatic robot that emulates the swimming locomotion of manta rays, and could one day substitute traditional autonomous underwater vehicles. The robotic manta ray which swims at the speed of twice its body length per second and can operate for up to 10 hours, could potentially be employed for underwater surveillance in future. Manta rays are considered one of nature’s most graceful and efficient swimmers. Unlike most underwater species, manta rays possess a unique…
