Robotic Fish With Biosensors Scours The Ocean For Water Pollution Data
Robotic Fish With Biosensors Scours The Ocean For Water Pollution Data.
Water pollution isn’t that easy to detect and the safety of the fishes isn’t well ensured due to the technology today.
Luckily, a team of researchers has created a robotic fish that could successfully monitor the water’s PH level and gather data regarding the changes that occurred.
It was then identified that the fish is made up of biosensors to keep track of water quality.
The acquired signal is then transformed into an electronic signal to be used in robot electronics control,” Giovanna Marrazza, an associate professor of analytical chemistry explained.
The robotic fish is then enabled to detect areas of acidity or pollutant concentration through its special PH sensors.
The robotic fish was described to be 30 cm long (12 in) with not measuring the tail.
The fish was also designed to be bio-mimetic.
In which meant that it would swim like a fish so it would reduce stress in aquatic animals.
Moreover, the robotic fish was also described to have a latex-based skin.
