Vision Sensor Modeling

The vision sensor of the artificial fish functions mainly as the eyes and/or the body lateral lines that enable it to detect objects in the environment that are relevant to its survival, such as food, predators, and mates. Artificial fishes also incorporate other sensing abilities observed in natural fish, such as olfactory sensing, which are essential for effective foraging. For example, predator fish, such as sharks, can stalk prey in murky water by detecting their chemical scent in the water.
