So far, SoFi doesn't appear to disturb the movements of other fish. It can be piloted with a waterproof remote control that uses ultrasonic signals and is based on an after-market video game controller. As per Rus, it moves with an "elegance, readiness and freedom" - not what you'd anticipate from a swimming robot.
In addition to the balloon chambers, SoFi features flexible plastic and silicone rubber for its back half, as well as a 3D-printed head and other components. The quiet motor-powered tail lets it mimic the quick-changing swimming patterns and movements of real fish. Furthermore, it touts sensors to enable it to abstain from hitting or harming marine situations like fragile reefs.
According to Daniela Rus, director of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT and leader of the work, the research has the potential to change the way we approach studying aquatic life moving into the future. A buoyancy method involving oil-filled chambers inside the fish allows it to be propelled up and down as well.
From here, the team wants to continue improving SoFi, affording it more speed through the water and even enable it to follow real fish automatically.
