‘Sepios‘ is a nautical robot which uses a special kind of fins inspired by cuttlefish. Developed by the students of the Autonomous Systems Lab of ETH Zurich, this cool robot will be showcased at IIT Bombay Techfest in association with swissnex India.
The only four finned cuttlefish robot in the world, Sepios distances itself from classical nautical vehicles with its omnidirecitonality and high maneuverability. These qualities combined with its fishlike appearance and low disturbance are ideal for closing in on fish, making it the ideal device for marine life filming. More details on: http://sepios.org/
