New robots mimic fish's swimming (w/ Video)
(PhysOrg.com) -- Borrowing from Mother Nature, a team of MIT researchers has built a school of swimming robo-fish that slip through the water just as gracefully as the real thing, if not quite as fast.
Robotic ghost knifefish is born (w/ Video)
(PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers at Northwestern University have created a robotic fish that can move from swimming forward and backward to swimming vertically almost instantaneously by using a sophisticated, ribbon-like fin.
Robot fish could monitor water quality
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.

A shoal of robotic fish which can detect pollution in the water are set to released into the sea off Spain, British scientists said Thursday.
Engineered robot interacts with live fish
A bioinspired robot has provided the first experimental evidence that live zebrafish can be influenced by engineered robots.
Robotic fish test the waters for safety risks
Cars may one day mimic fish to avoid collisions
Engineers in Japan say they are a step closer to developing technology they hope will cut the risk of car crashes -- by mimicking the behaviour of fish.
Robot fish can trick the real thing
Scientists have long turned to nature for inspiration and innovation. From unlocking the secrets of spider silk to create super-strong materials to taking hints from geckos for new adhesives, clues from the ...
Robofish grace glides with the greatest of ease
(Phys.org)—A high-tech robotic fish hatched at Michigan State University has a new look. A new skill. And a new name.
Gotcha! Ultra-realistic robot proves there's more than one way to scare a fish
In the world of the tiny zebrafish, the predatory red tiger oscar is the stuff of nightmares. And while the species has no natural reason to fear robots, researchers at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering ...
Soft robotic fish moves like the real thing (w/ video)
Soft robots—which don't just have soft exteriors but are also powered by fluid flowing through flexible channels—have become a sufficiently popular research topic that they now have their own journal, ...
Team creates realistic Robot Carp, first robot fish with autonomous 3-D movement in Asia
A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore's (NUS) Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering has developed a robot fish that mimics the movements of a carp. This robot which is ...
