Tunabot Robot is a smart robot fish that is built in a way that, as the current of water speeds up, its tail and body move in a rapid bending pattern. This mimics the way a real yellowfin tuna swims. When the Tunabot was tethered in flow tanks at both universities, laser-based fluid-motion analysis showed that it was capable of swimming at a maximum speed equivalent to that of a real yellowfin of the same size – about four body lengths per second.
