In this talk, we review biophysical research on the fish lateral line organ, and the resulting fluid-structure-interaction models. These models are used and extended to model and create an artificial lateral line. The bio-inspired model allows tuning the frequency response curve, which is validated with experiments. There are several applications for artificial lateral lines, which include fluid flow perception, object localisation, and object identification; these are all demonstrated here. Concluding, the fish lateral line inspires; artificial lateral lines can be upscaled and be useful; and neural networks can be used to solve hydrodynamic tasks.
