Recently developed bioinspired robots imitate their live counterparts in both aspect and functionality. Nevertheless, whether these devices can be integrated within the ecological niche inspiring their design is seldom tested experimentally. An elemental research question concerns the feasibility of modulating spontaneous behaviour of animal systems through… (More)
In this paper, we study the response of zebrafish to a robotic-fish whose morphology and colour pattern are inspired by zebrafish. Experiments are conducted in a three-chambered instrumented water tank where a robotic-fish is juxtaposed with an empty compartment, and the preference of live subjects is scored as the mean time spent in the vicinity of the… (More)
In this paper, we study the feasibility of modulating fish behavior using bioinspired underwater robotics. We experimentally study the response of zebrafish (Danio rerio) to a robotic fish of varying size, color pattern, and motility in a dichotomous preference test. In this canonical experimental protocol, focal fish residing in the central compartment of… (More)
This article narrates the development, organization, and execution of a robotics-based outreach program designed to ignite K-12 students' interests in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and attract them toward engineering careers.
