They can go on research missions in stormy weather, dive to 150 metres and could soon be ‘singing’ signals. These penguin-like devices are helping to explain the eddies that are key to all life

If it looks like a penguin and swims like a penguin – but it’s actually a robot – then it must be the latest advance in marine sensory equipment.

The Quadroin is an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV): a 3D-printed self-propelled machine designed to mimic a penguin in order to measure the properties of oceanic eddies.
