Coral-bots: teams of robots that repair coral reefs

The Ocean Systems Laboratory is a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center that innovates, applies and teaches world class advances in autonomous systems, sensor modelling/processing, and underwater acoustic system theory/design for offshore, marine science, renewable energy and security applications.

The Oceans Systems Laboratory with their advance technology have come up with a variety of robots for specific applications to help rebuilt the coral reef.  The Coral-Bots are a team of robots that intelligently navigate across a damaged coral reef, transplanting pieces of healthy corals along the  way.   

Here is an interesting article you can read up on how the bots are helping our Mother Earth:
