Robotics researchers turn the public’s ideas into ‘robo-fish’ reality

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

A robot fish that filters microplastics has been brought to life after it won the University of Surrey’s public competition—The Natural Robotics Contest.

The robot fish design, which was designed by a student named Eleanor Mackintosh, was selected by an international panel of judges because it could be part of a solution to minimize plastic pollution in our waterways.

The competition, which ran in the summer of 2022, was open to anyone who had an idea for a bio-inspired robot, with the promise that the winner would be turned into a working prototype.
