Jellyfish Killer Robot JEROS is Developed

A research team has finished testing the jellyfish killer robot named JEROS at Gyeongnam Masan Bay. This research team works under the leadership of Professor Hyeon Myeong who works at KAIST Civil and Environmental Engineering Department.

This field tests depicts that 3 cooperative assembly robots "operating at 4 knots (7.2km/h) disposes jellyfish at the rate of about 900kg/h," according to KAIST. All the funds for making this jellyfish exterminator robot JEROS are given by Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning and Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy. 

Why there is a need to control jellyfish population? Actually a recent swarm of jellyfish in coastal waters proves to be the major cause of increased number of accidents and 300 billion won per year fishing industry loss. That is why Prof. Hyeon Myeong and his research team started making "unmanned automated system capable of eradicating jellyfish in 2009, and has since completed field-tests last year with success." 

This recent test results show that JEROS has improved speed and performance. This jellyfish killer robot is also tested to work in a group and its shows the ability to work in formation to kill big jellyfish.

JEROS is not only a jellyfish exterminator robot but it might also be used for other works like prevention of oil spills, waste removal in sea and marine patrols.
