  • Researchers create underwater jellyfish robot

    2012 - 04.02

    Researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas (http://www.utdallas.edu/) and Virginia Tech (http://www.vt.edu/) have created an undersea vehicle inspired by the common jellyfish that runs on renewable energy and could be used in ocean dives for rescue and surveillance missions.

    In a study published this week in Smart Materials and Structures (http://iopscience.iop.org/0964-1726/21/4/045013), scientists created a robotic jellyfish, dubbed RoboJelly, to feed off hydrogen and oxygen gases found in water.
