Biologically inspired robotic fish, which swim around a tank and avoid objects, are the subject of an entry into the IT category of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) 2008 Innovation Awards.

The robotic fish, built by scientists at Essex University, are the most advanced in the world. Each has four computers, five motors and over 10 sensors on-board.

The technology will have a wide range of future uses, including sea bed exploration, detection of leaks in oil pipelines, sea life exploration and even spying.
