HULL BUG





090621-N-0000X-001 WASHINGTON (June 21, 2009) The Robotic Hull Bio-inspired Underwater Grooming tool, or HULL BUG, is being tested by the Office of Naval Research as a hull-cleaning device. The HULL BUG is similar in concept to an autonomous robotic home vacuum cleaner and uses a biofilm detector to differentiate between the clean and unclean surfaces on the hull of a ship.
