University of San Diego, CA, is developing small sized ocean probing robots with National Science Foundation support. The number of robots will be so huge that they will operate with swarm robotics concepts and each robot team will be made of hundreds of small robots reporting to a soccer ball sized main robot. Among many possible duties, the main task of the small robots will be to examine how small animals in the ocean survive, their interaction with each other and their environment as they move. This will help to improve the current ocean models, which will lead to a better understanding of climate for instance. For original story, please visit here.
