Robotic eel can find water pollution source
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.
