Artificial Fish Locomotion and Sensing (FILOSE)
Start date: Feb 1, 2009, End date: May 31, 2012 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Description New technologies for underwater robotics FIsh LOcomotion and SEnsing ( FILOSE ) is addressing the bottlenecks of underwater robotics, namely the problems of how fish do and robots could sense the underwater environment and how they achieve high adaptability and reliability in these very unstable surroundings. Solving these problems will lead to new underwater technologies that serve people better. The overall aim of FILOSE is to acquire a deeper understanding of the principles underlying fish locomotion and sensing, in order to develop new technologies for underwater vehicles on the basis of biological evidence. The FILOSE project results can be applied and used in the following fields: underwater humanitarian demining, environmental monitoring, search and rescue, anti-terrorist activities, surveillance of harbors, coast security, entertainment, edutainment and fishery.
