The Korean Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs is developing a wireless aquatic robot that can swim at a speed of 18 meters per second and crawl at a speed of 30 mi./sec. Each has six paddles and camera to find sunken ships. The $17.88 million project hopes to have a prototype by 2012 that can reach a depth of up to 200 meters and another by 2015 that can reach a 6 km depth.
