BREED HKU: Robotic Fish@4th Inno Show

Innovation Wing affiliated student interest groups & thematic workshop projects

Project supervisor: Dr. Zhang Fu (Department of Mechanical Engineering)

Project information

Project descriptions

The robotic fish project provides aspiring engineers with a platform to gain hands-on experience in applied engineering. With design innovation, we enhance the functionality of the fish to further improve manoeuvrability and control. Our initial goal to make the robot faster and break the world record again has been achieved. Now, the second goal is to solve real-world problems. From discussions with stakeholders, we have identified an opportunity to apply our robot in data collection for marine exploration and pollution monitoring. It can be used to collect water data such as temperature, pH, etc. and also for real-time mapping and monitoring of specimens in the environment such as coral reefs, microplastics, etc. We envision a series of such projects under the BREED umbrella to promote bio-robotics with a purpose. Ultimately, we hope to create an organisation that drives social impact through innovative robotics solutions.
