Submersible Robot Snake

Science Innovations

Scientists at Carnegie Mellon University Biorobotics Lab have devised a submersible robot snake capable of inspecting ships, submarines and infrastructure for damage. It can go places other robots can’t and snake around and squeeze into hardto- reach underwater spaces. A submersible robot snake could allow the Navy to inspect the ship at sea, immediately alerting the crew to critical damage or sending information about issues that need attention back to port for use when the ship docks. If the information about damage to ship is received before it reaches home port or a dry dock, that could save weeks or months of time in a maintenance schedule. Sailors would be happy to hand over the diffuclut duty of crawling into ballast tanks to robots.
