An autonomous Robotic fish is on its way to fish out pollution. With the increasing number of toxic waste in our waters, it seems that a robotic solution is necessary and the researchers from University of Essex are working around the clock to develop this cool fish that can use its sensors to determine any pollutants that are present.
These robot fish will relay the location of contaminants via Wi-Fi underwater and they can assimilate with other fish. Using GPS, they can also navigate themselves anywhere, of course, batteries need to be recharged as needed.
I think this is a particularly great technology that has been lagging behind but it’s good to see the researchers at Essex University are on it!
The university of Essex have come up with robotic fish, they swim up and down the rivers while their sensors will check for pollutants, relay the results by using an on board Wi-Fi system and they navigate the rivers using GPS. At the end of the day, the fish will return to base to deliver results and a recharge of its batteries.
