Scientists have taught fish how to operate a wheeled aquarium

Employees at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev constructed the “Fish vehicle” or the “Fish car,” which is a four-wheeled aquarium with electric motors. It transports and controls the aquarium with the use of a camera. When the fish moves or changes position, it captures data about it and transmits it to the wheels for processing. With the use of this gadget, scientists allowed goldfish to navigate and move around. It is probably possible to allow other fish species likeĀ gourami to move around in this moving fish tank.

Researchers at the University of Israel have discovered that all living creatures on the planet obey a set of universally applicable principles. They constructed a vehicle that allowed fish to move their aquarium.

This fish tank vehicle includes a camera, lidar and is mounted on a movable platform. Through these sensors, fish motions are monitored, and signaling is sent to the moving gear modules, allowing the fish to move the aquarium to a new position in search of a food source.

Experiments were conducted in a small room to determine whether or not the hypothesis holds. The “fish mobile” needed to reach some objectives painted on the walls. After completion of the assignment, the fish were provided with food. It took a lot of time for fish to finish all the assignments, but after some time, it learned and was able to complete them very fast. This demonstrated that fish could recognize items, pave their journey, and navigate through unknown situations.

The vast majority of animals are capable of fundamental cognitive abilities. They have the ability to sense their surroundings, analyze, store, and collect information. Learning from past events and applying the stored information to solve future issues necessitates intelligence, which is a higher degree of cognitive functioning. This makes a difference to plans that have already been preprogrammed. Fish and animals have adaptation and flexibility in a changing environment.

The fish possess many of the most significant qualities of intelligent living organisms. Scientists found that fish can communicate with other species and have excellent long-term memory skills. They also play games with one another and frequently collaborate. 

Many fish have also demonstrated significant levels of reasoning ability. Scientists found that guppies can pick between different-sized herds that display their computing capabilities in laboratory studies. Their comfort level increases when they are part of a large group, making them similar to humans.
