Swimming robots can be incredibly beneficial to "studying and mapping the surf-zone, where waves meet the shore." To move innovation forward, US company Pliant Energy Systems creates a highly versatile robot that is quite agile and can quickly change locations. For this project, the firm taps its green energy technology which was originally developed for generating electricity from rivers.

Pliant Energy Systems' swimming robot has soft fins that make it quite agile and its "amphibious abilities" definitely carry some value for sea exploration. The Velox robot is a great example of how innovation-focused companies are expanding their horizons as they are developing technologies that can be useful in a number of ways and in a number of industries.
