Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Scientists from the Michigan State University made a number of improvements on a high-tech robotic fish. The new fish, called Grace, was designed and built by Xiaobo Tan, an MSU associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, and his team. They equipped the new fish with an array of sensors, allowing it to travel autonomously through the water, as well as measure water temperature, quality and other pacts. These...

Michigan State University scientists developing biomimetic probes Nature inspires technology for an engineer and an ecologist teamed up at Michigan State University. They're developing robots that use advanced materials to swim like fish to probe underwater environments. "Fish are very efficient," explained Xiaobo Tan, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering. "They can perform very efficient locomotion and maneuvering in the water." Robotic fish "“ perhaps schools...
