You can read about the robotic fish work of Clark School faculty and alumni in a feature story published in the April 4 edition of the Baltimore Sun.

Associate Professor Derek Paley (AE/ISR); Associate Professor Sean Humbert (AE); alumnus and Michigan State University Associate Professor Xiaobo Tan (EE Ph.D. 2002), and Professor Sheryl Coombs of Bowling Green State University have been working on bio-inspired flow sensing and control for autonomous underwater vehicles through a 2012 Office of Naval Research grant.

The goal is to create an autonomous underwater vehicle that can find stationary objects by changes in water flow, and can also work in groups.
