Project Description

Closed-loop control of zebrafish response using a bioinspired robotic-fish in a preference test (2012)

Researchers at The Polytechnic Institute of New York University explored the interactions of zebrafish with a robotic-fish that autonomously observed and adapted to the live fish’s motion. An experimental setup was designed to allow the robotic-fish to change the movement of its tail as the fish approached or receded in the tank. Like a trained leader, a robotic-fish that beat its tail faster as zebrafish moved closer and slower as they swam away was found to be the most preferred by zebrafish.
