Bio-Design and Develop of Robot Fish


Article Preview

Based on the characteristics of fish swimming, the robotic research significance and future application, the pattern of fish propulsion, and the mode of carangide crescent-shape caudal fin, this article designs and develops a simple bio-robotic fish. The paper focuses on the design of robot fish system, including the mechanical structure design, selection and installation of steering gear, hardware control system design, and remote control system deign, and software design and development.
