Researchers from the EPFL research institution in Switzerland have created a robotic eel that can measure water pollutant levels. The sensor-equipped eel can swim through contaminated water to find the source of pollution, moving on its own accord by being controlled remotely. When tested in Lake Geneva, it was found that the robot could also generate maps of water conductivity and temperature. The project is funded by the Swiss NanoTera Program to help build a robot that can detect water pollutants. The eel robot, coined 'Envirobot', has chemical, physical and biological sensors embedded within its almost 1.5 meter long construction.…
