Mechanical bream: where was established the first in Russia aquarium with fish robots
Giant artificial pond with a two-foot mechanical bream placed at ENEA.
In the pavilion № 2, “Robodance” at ENEA has established the first in Russia aquarium with fish robots. In this floating five mechanical bream that looks almost no different from the living.
Fish-robots are made of a sealed waterproof plastic. They have silvery scales, which on the surface with built-in LEDs and the special stainless steel coating creates a flickering effect. The length of each fish is 50 centimeters, which is fully consistent with the adult size of this species.
Habitat the robots are also as close to natural. The bottom of a giant aquarium with a volume of three thousand liters lined with natural river stone. Due to the powerful filtration system in the artificial pond of transparent running water. In the near future in the aquarium will be planted algae.
“Modern man equally well learned how to use robots in the air, on land and in water. We want to show how technology can merge with nature and even be indistinguishable from it. Fish-robots, by the way, not just entertainment, they can be helpers of man in the study of the oceans and rivers, flora and fauna,” — said the press service of “; its area being”.
The movement of each fish is a special motion sensor, which allows her to easily see and overcome obstacles (algae, rocks) and not to collide with neighbors in the aquarium. Natural conditions are created in order to test this function. In addition, it is possible to connect to the robot video camera with underwater shooting mode. Mechanical fish capable of swimming without charging 12 hours and dive to a depth of five meters.
The revival of ENEA
Experts”; its area being” tells visitors about the history of fish-robots, and in which areas can be claimed a similar technology.
In addition robequain, in pavilion 2 you can see the robot blinopek, which is regularly involved in urban gastronomic festivals. Another robot named Baxter is famous because of its ability to predict the outcome of sporting events. A few accurate predictions robot Oracle did during the confederations Cup and FIFA world Cup 2018 held in Russia from 14 June to 15 July. By the way, anyone who wants to test your reaction speed, can play football with the living “; its area being” a robot goalkeeper.
