+ Deep-sea robots.

A team of students of the Far Eastern Federal University has once again won the world championship remotely controlled submersible devices MATE International ROV Competition 2012, held in Orlando, Florida, USA. The annual competition attracts teams of specialists in underwater robotics from around the world.
The theme this time the championship was the study of shipwrecks of World War II. For the participants was simulated a situation in which fuel is sunk during the battle ships acted real environmental threat, which must be neutralized. The task team was part of the development of methods for safe removal of fuel, which respectively, imply the protection of the fauna of the oceans.
At the heart of the device, developed by a team of FEFU lie bionic principles, which makes the "skeleton" of the device similar to a sea-dweller. The unit can withstand the pressure at a depth of 6 meters and is equipped with video cameras that transmit the pilot a complete picture of what is happening on the seabed. Some of the details for this device was first created. For example, engine components are made of plastic with the 3D-printer.

+ EMILY - A rescue robot.

It is possible that the number of accidents on the water, and significantly reduced by the development engineers from Arizona. new robot, made by employees Hydronalix, swimming is a standalone tool that can find themselves drowning and quickly rushed to help. For this purpose it is equipped with sonar and acoustic sensors.
One battery charge lasts for different time intervals, depending on the functional tasks. In standby mode, signal the robot can be about 100 hours, patrol mode, at a speed of 8 km / h - 8 hours. However, as soon as the robot receives the signal, its rate increases to 64 km / h In this "state", he can continue the search for 35 minutes. It is also important that the robot is equipped with a camera, speakers and microphone. This allows the coastal rescue service to be in contact order or those who got into trouble.
His brainchild of the developers gave the name EMILY (for EMergency Integrated Lifesaving lanYard). As stated by Tony Mulligan, The Director-General Hydronalix, stand-alone version will go on sale next spring at a price of $ 3500.

+ The fish robot guard the environment.
Today, before another robot - in the form of fish (robotic fish), called the G8 and equipped with chemical sensors for detect sources of pollution in water bodies, with subsequent transfer of the coordinates in the control center for the Wi-Fi.

+ Solar Breeze - a solar-powered robot cleans pools.

So far, already familiar to many, robot vacuum cleaners gaining market share, their waterfowl "colleagues" are looking for a place under the sun. And it's not a metaphor!
Solar Breeze company introduced a new generation of robots for cleaning swimming pools, replacement model, a two-year years ago. The robot is equipped with the same name solar panels. It collects dust, dirt and oily film on the surface water until they sink to the bottom, food is carried out directly from the sun. Solar energy is also used to recharge the batteries, which allow you to continue working even after sunset. Embedded Software the robot picks up the most lighted place for the effective use of solar panels.
An updated version of the robot uses 300% more power than solar panels with the previous version, and the term service engine is 30,000 hours. Cost of Solar Breeze robot to clean the pool - $ 499.

+ Pneumatic fish.
Another interesting direction - bionic mechanisms. In the company Festo created a remote-controlled fish. small fish called - Airacuda. It moves in the water with the help of a pneumatic actuator, which works on the same the principle that muscles of live fish. The pneumatic mechanism of the fin rotates from side to side, thereby traction is achieved.
+ Octopus - Octopus robot with soft limbs.

The European program dedicated Octopus Project "study and understanding of the principles of sensory-motor functions cephalopods, as well as their integration in engineering projects. "As is known, the implementation of "soft" mechanisms is One of the problems slozhneyschih robotics. Therefore, any development in this area caused scientific interest among specialists. A prototype of a robot in the image of an octopus, submitted under the program, has tentacles that can not only move and squirm like a living, but also to capture some of the items.
The limbs are made of special material having a memory for form. When the temperature of it (ie the shape) changes its length, so no additional servo. The remaining six tentacles are made of silicone with steel cables inside, connected by cables with nylon strings, which are managed by the limbs. Developers call the Octopus the first completely "soft robot".

The Japanese robot fish.
Scientists from Japan's University University of Kitakyushu have developed a strange robot, whose task is to study of the underwater world and monitor the marine and freshwater creatures. This fish robot, virtually indistinguishable from its prototype - sea bream, has a rather impressive size and weighs about 7 kg. The model is covered with silicone and equipped with a special engine, driving the tail, which is visually very similar to the movement directly to the fish.
