What Are Robot Fish?
Robot fish, hence its name, is a machine made from materials that looks like a fish. It is an autonomous robot fish equipped with a chemical sensor. It can swim in the water for several hours. The robot fish finds pollutants and draws a real-time three-dimensional map of the port. This indicates what chemicals are present in the sea and where they are located. The development of this technology will increase the flexibility and adaptability of port authorities to monitor ship pollution, other types of harmful pollutants, and pollutants emitted from underwater pipelines. In addition to benefiting surveillance operations at EU ports, this project can also bring important advances in robotics, chemical analysis, underwater communications and robotic intelligence.

- Such as in-situ or small field swimming, excellent swimming maneuverability and underwater hovering performance, and low swimming cost, it integrates lifting, hovering and propulsion functions into a flapping wing system, which can use very little energy For long-distance swimming, it is more suitable for performing tasks without long-term energy replenishment and long-distance conditions.
- The robot fish project will use advanced cluster intelligence technology to effectively control and coordinate groups of robot fish, and is suitable for making rapid changes in the port environment. When any fish finds contamination, it sends GPS details of the location of the contamination point to other fish.
- Robotic fish are equipped with autonomous navigation devices that allow them to swim around the port without human control. After 8 hours of use, when the battery power is low, they will automatically swim back to the charging station to charge. When they swim back, they will simultaneously send water quality data to researchers over a wireless LAN. If tested well, robotic fish can be used to monitor pollution of rivers, lakes and oceans around the world.
- They are constantly monitoring pollutants. When a fish finds a substance, it sends information to other peers, and then they gather in the area where the substance is found to jointly detect. "
