Underwater monitoring is still conducted mainly by human divers. Therefore, underwater robotics or remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs) that can monitor from(More)
Herein, three oscillating fin propulsors connected in a parallel and in a staggered arrangement were investigated to develop an environmental-friendly and energy-saving propulsor. In this study, the flow pattern induced by these fish-like propulsors was achieved with a low Reynolds number and was measured using the particle image velocimetry (PIV)(More)
