Robotic Turtles

Since the dawn of the technological age, and even before that, researchers have been fascinated with trying to mimic nature and natural behaviors. In the underwater robotics world, the robot of choice would be a small autonomous bot that can sink and dive quickly, without a ballast system.

Researchers at the National University of Singapore (NUS) say that the robot they’d choose is the robotic turtle that can think for itself and has the same behavior of a real turtle – diving, swimming, and swarming.

Scientists want to be able to create swarms of tiny autonomous robotic sea turtles that can tackle huge underwater problems like nuclear waste detection, missions often too dangerous for humans.

Wow, it’s 2015 already! Enjoy your new year celebrations, and be ready for a great year in technological innovations! Why? Well…because robots!
