This paper describes a sensing-actuation coupling of a robotic trout that detects changes of the laminar flow speed using an on-board pressure sensor and adjusts its tail-beat frequency for steady swimming. The caudal fin actuator closely mimics the morphology of a real trout, in particular the geometry, stiffness and stiffness distribution of the body and(More)
Within the broader scope of underwater biomimetics, in this paper we address the relevance of factors such as shape and elasticity distribution in the ability of a compliant device to imitate the kinematic behaviour of a fish. We assess the viability of myometry as a tool to determine candidate mechanical parameters without relying solely on analytical(More)
