The London Aquarium unveiled the newest “species” to join its collection: robo-carp.  (October 7, 2005).

Computer scientists at the University of Essex in the U.K. developed the self-guided robot fish, seen here swimming in the aquarium. The designers say it is the smartest such robot yet created—the fish uses artificial intelligence and built-in sensors to avoid obstacles and respond to environmental changes.

The fish’s battery lasts for up to five hours, though the scientists hope to one day program it to search for and access a recharging station when it runs low.

“This work has many real-world applications, including seabed exploration, detecting leaks in oil pipelines, mine countermeasures, and improving the performance of underwater vehicles,” project leader Huosheng Hu told the Associated Press.

The bot, which resembles a one-and-a-half-foot-long (half-meter-long) common carp, mimics the undulating motions of a real fish swimming and turning. Three of the cyber-fish will swim in a tank at the aquarium alongside their living counterparts.

Japan unveils mind control robot

[media id=3 width=500 height=400]

And finally… in Japan scientists at the Honda Research Institute have unveiled the world’s first brain to machine interface. Dubbed BMI short for Brain Machine Interface this new technology system will enable people to control robots using their mind.

Pushing buttons and fiddling with levers to control a robot could be a thing of the past. Honda’s new system works using a brain activity measuring device that sends signals to their famous ASIMO humanoid robot.

As a user imagines moving a body part, sensors placed on the head measure and analyze the slight waves and blood flow changes in the brain. This allows the robot to make corresponding movements such as raising its arm or leg. Honda hopes to incorporate the technology into a variety of human-friendly products in the future.

[Tatsuya Okube, Honda Research]:

“As you know, we are, we are fundamental researchers so now we are, we are challenging to release some new technology. So unfortunately now we cannot expect when we can release BMI (Brain Machine Interface) as a product.”

Japan is now home to almost half of the world’s 800,000 industrial robots. This massive robot population is expected to turn into a 10 billion U.S. dollar industry in the future.
