Self-driving fish tank on wheels lets the fish steer the tank using image recognition

Self-driving fish tank on wheels lets the fish steer the tank using image recognitionDeveloped by Studio DIIP (Designing Intelligent Imaging Products) and crowned the “first self-driving car for fish”, Fish on Wheels lets its fish tank occupant steer the tank in whatever direction it feels like going thereby liberating imprisoned fish the world over.  The prototype tank was built using a standard webcam, battery-powered Beagleboard, and an Arduino controller and uses the contrast of the fish with the bottom of the fish tank to determine the fish’s position in the tank.  When the fish moves to the right of the tank, the tank steers in that direction and when it moves left – well, you get the picture.

Check out video of a goldfish driving the tank around below or visit Studio DIPP for complete details on the project.
