A “soft” and automatic robot that reaches a depth in the ocean. Chinese scientists have developed an automated robot for deep-sea research that is very soft and can swim freely. In recent experiments, the robot has been tested by swimming in the deepest part of the ocean, the Mariana Trench. It is located at a depth of 10,900 meters (approximately 11,000 meters). Earlier, in initial experiments. It was successfully swept to a depth of 3,224 meters in the South China Sea.
Depth Of Ocean
Explain that as we descend into the depths of the ocean. The water pressure also increases. Even at the depths of the Mariana Trench, it is 1,071 times higher than. The air pressure at ground level (standard air pressure). This pressure is so great that no living thing on earth can survive.
Nevertheless, during the last few research expeditions. A variety of living things have been discovered in the depths of the ocean that are very different from the animals. And plants found on the surface of the earth. It should be noted that special and expensive machines (especially submarines and robots) are required. To reach the deep and dark depths of the sea. That is why they are among the places on earth that we know very little about today.
However, jellyfish and other animals found in these depths of the ocean do not have such an arrangement. But these soft-bodied animals not only survive this intense pressure but also float around. retaining Li of Xijiang University in Hangzhou, China, and his colleagues have invented. A soft robot inspired by the “snailfish” found in the deep sea.
This “soft robot” is also because of all of its electronic devices related to motion. And guidance systems, are enclosed in a soft silicone shell that exerts tremendous pressure. Even at extraordinary depths, such as the Mariana Trench. Can bear very comfortably.
In this way, it is more capable of conducting depth-of-sea exploration than ever before. Its inventors say it is the first model or “prototype” of “soft robots” that will be further improved. In the future using even softer and lighter materials while moving. And by adding features like intelligence. It will also be able to be explored in all sorts of different environments.
