South Korea to build Underwater Robot

Underwater Robot

According to the announcement yesterday, South Korea’s Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs is planning to invest 20 billion won in an ‘underwater robot’ project until 2015. The project is about the construction of an “articulated, multiple-mobile” robot which will be capable of handling various tasks at maximum of 6,000 meters underwater ranging from exploration and rescue operations to such environmental missions as maintenance of underwater flora. The development of the robot with capabilities to operate in shallow water is the first phase of the project and scheduled to be completed by 2012. And during the second phase from 2013 to 2015, the robot will further be improved to perform its planned deep water tasks.

And maybe also act like a government spy?
