According to a press release from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Mark Patterson and other researchers have given an AUV the ability to make fish population counts. Their Fetch AUV uses side-scan sonar to identify and track underwater objects such as fish. A neural network allows the robot to classify objects into specific species of fish such as jacks or sharks.
