Underwater navigation technology modeled after Blind Cave Fish

12/13/2012 | ScienceDaily

Scientists have created affordable, easily powered underwater navigational systems by using as a model sensory tissue found on Blind Cave Fish, a species that can swim rapidly while avoiding obstacles. The sensors use water pressure and flow information to direct movement, an approach that is much less expensive than lights and cameras and does not pose the possible harm to marine animals of sonar. Applications of the new technology include better water ecology monitoring and military defense capabilities.
