Re: Do they school

Lou, schooling in fish is basically swarming behavior--the term swarming is taken from insects, but the collective movements and communication are the same idea in robotics, whether the model is a flock of birds, a swarm of insects or a school of fish. These robotic tuna were designed to operate individually, not in groups via swarming behavior. But that would be an interesting option.

Thanks, Beth. I just wish we had a video of this one, so we could see how close its movements are to the original.

Ann, this is really amazing, and one of the more appropriate bio inspired designs you have reported on.  I was just wondering, though, if you put a bunch of them together, would they form schools?  That would be a great sight.  It might also help catch people fishing illegally.

Wow, of all the animal-like robots you've reported on, Ann, this  one really takes a page from its animal muse. I could see these robot tunas combing through rough waters and countless fisherman after them for the daily catch. Amazing, in terms of design, any way.

Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
The big picture to this hands-on technology curriculum is to illustrate to students that the future of IoT and IoE (Internet of Everything) development can be created in today’s classroom.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
