Terranaut – Fish-Powered Vehicle

by Dhiram Shah


Seth Weiner’s art project is a vehicle called Terranaut. This interesting vessel is driven by the motions of a Blood Parrot fish in a fish bowl which is termed as the Cockpit. A camera mounted above the tank tracks the fish’s movement and relays that information to a computer, which then drives the robot in the direction the fish is travelling. Terranaut is powered by two drive wheels each powered by its own Servometer.
