They create effective cyborg locusts to detect explosives | Digital Trends Spanish

The smell of lobsters has been studied for years for its potential use as a safety tool for humans. In 2016, the US Navy's Office of Naval Research (ONR) funded a project at the University of Washington, Saint Louis, to create remote-controlled lobsters that would detect explosives and contaminants. The insects were fitted with biorobotic devices that took advantage of the lobsters' sense of smell and could also distinguish what they were smelling. This is how the so-called cyborg locusts were born. The olfactory capacity of these animals has now been refounded by a new study by the University of Washington, released on Friday, August 14, by the institution's website. The research team conducted experiments and models and determined that "detection by multiple lobsters...
