FILOSE (Robotic FIsh LOcomotion and SEnsing) is a research project financed by 7th Framework Program and including the following collaborators: Tallinn University of Technology, Center for Biorobotics; University of Verona, Altair Lab; Italian Institute of Technology; University of Bath; and Riga Technical University.

We investigate how fish sense the flow around them and react to the changes in the flow patter. Then we want to build robots that act in the same way.

FIsh LOcomotion and SEnsing ( FILOSE ) is addressing the bottlenecks of underwater robotics, namely the problems of how fish do and robots could sense the underwater environment and how they achieve high adaptability and reliability in these very unstable surroundings. Solving these problems will lead to new underwater technologies that serve people better. The overall aim of FILOSE is to acquire a deeper understanding of the principles underlying fish locomotion and sensing, in order to develop new technologies for underwater vehicles on the basis of biological evidence. The FILOSE project results can be applied and used in the following fields: underwater humanitarian demining, environmental monitoring, search and rescue, anti-terrorist activities, surveillance of harbors, coast security, entertainment, edutainment and fishery.
