Meet Envirobot, a robotic eel that swims through contaminated water to find the source of the pollution. In tests carried out by its Swiss creators in a small section of Lake Geneva, Envirobot was able to generate maps of water conductivity and temperature.
The robot can be remote controlled or move independently, using chemical, physical and biological sensors to measure water parameters, and send the data to a computer in real time.
