Starfish-killing robots headed to Great Barrier Reef

Roboticists at QUT develop a robot aimed at destroying invasive starfish, thereby saving the life of the Great Barrier Reef. First trials of this robot in the sea have been completed in Queensland's Moreton Bay. More trials are set to take place later this month. While just a few robots will be deployed at first, this device's creator sees great potential for a whole horde of them, all with the same goal. "The COTSbot becomes a real force multiplier for the eradication process the more of them you deploy," said Dr Matthew Dunbabin from QUT's Institute for Future Environments.
