Submersible snake-inspired robot can inspect ships and infrastructure

The Hardened Underwater Modular Robot Snake features a reconfigurable, modular architecture

Scientists at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have spent a number of years developing modular snake-like robots for all kinds of purposes, and the latest adaptation sees its serpent-inspired tech headed underwater. The team has developed a submersible SnakeBot capable of navigating tight spaces, which the scientists hope will see it used to inspect ships for the military, or investigate underwater pipes for blockages.
