Robofish uses chemicals to detect pollutants

BMT Robotic Fish.jpgA robotic fish which detects harmful pollutants using chemical sensors has been developed by UK-based BMT Group.

The sophisticated £20,000 ($29,000) carp “robofish” can swim individually or in shoals in slow-moving water in harbours and ports, and they communicate the data back to the control centre while replenishing their batteries at their charging hub. The robofish will soon be deployed to the coast of Spain, according to an announcement by the company.
