Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created the next generation of marine monitoring equipment – lifelike swimming robots.
Smaller and more agile than old equipment, this soft fish (SoFi) robot can get closer to reefs and encounter swarms of fish while capturing information using its onboard camera. It’s kind of a mobile observatory for monitoring and observing underwater species.
The research has been published in Science Robotics
