Vortex phase matching as a strategy for schooling in robots and in fish, Nature Communications

Robots help to answer age-old question of why fish school

by Carla Avolio

Study using biomimetic fish-like robots shows that swimming closely together offers fish hydrodynamic benefits – research project with participation from University of Konstanz researchers provides first experimental validation of an answer to an old question.

A fish school is a striking demonstration of synchronicity. Yet centuries of study have left a basic question unanswered: do fish save energy by swimming in schools?
