Underwater robots function like schools of fish

Robotics may soon be giving sea life a run for their money. European scientists have created small underwater robots that are capable of not only learning individually but also of interacting and exchanging information as a group — a function known as collective cognition, which is akin to schools of fish. Over the past year, 22 videos have been released by the EU-supported CoCoRo project that show the autonomous robots performing various demonstrations underwater as a group, which is the largest underwater robot swarm to date.
