Tan and his Co-Pi's awarded $1M or Tracking Acoustically Tagged Live Fish
with a School of Gliding Robotic Fish
NSF has just awarded MSU a four-year, $1M project, to develop the technology and the underlying science for tracking acoustically tagged live fish with a school of gliding robotic fish to Professor Xiaobo Tan and his co-PIs, Profs. Guoliang Xing (Computer Science and Engineering) and Chuck Krueger (Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability, and Fishery & Wildlife).
Funded by the NSF Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) program, the project is a collaboration between MSU and the USGS Great Lakes Science Center. Chris Holbrook, a research ecologist from USGS, is a senior personnel on this project. The project aims to, for the first time, continuously track the movement of live fish over extended periods of time, which will enable advances in the control of invasive species as well as restoration of native species in the Great Lakes among other applications.
