Question 1 of 4

It’s not easy to build an agile, sensing robot to explore the dark depths of the ocean. Most underwater robots rely on sonar and infrared sensors or video cameras that relay information back to a human controller. But a new robot inspired by the black ghost knifefish successfully navigates even in complete darkness. How does it navigate?
