ABSTRACT

  Zoos and aquariums are visited by 700 million people every year;  they are popular tourist locations all around the world and  generate billions of dollars of revenue yearly. More than nine  million people in the US own a small household fish tank, which  indicates a desire to bring some of the aquarium features into their  homes.  We considered the viability of real-life indoor aquariums. We  found that the deficiencies that lead to the problem are closely  related to costs of operation (maintenance), spacing (for housing)  and personnel (for upkeep). In this paper, we analyze the problem,  provide our current solution to the issue, and discuss future uses  of the solution developed in order to tackle this problem.  Our solution is to bring smart robotics and smart algorithms in the  form of autonomous robotic fish aquariums into the every-day  home in order to deliver awe- inspiring simulated aquariums. The  solution tackles the cost of spacing (by moving the aquarium into  the air), the personnel (by removing the humans and replacing the  fish with robots) and the costs of operation (by requiring just air  space and helium). For this solution, we created environment-aware fish simulators  that were capable of replicating basic fish functions (such as  swimming) along with full usage of avoidance maneuvering,  ultrasonic sensing systems, and Bluetooth wireless networking. A  key part of our solution is attempting to improve the existing user  interaction between the current generation of robotics and humans  from our current rudimentary simple button control to more  sophisticated algorithms such as Fast Fourier Transform for voice...
