—This paper introduces a new robotic fish, iSplash-II, capable of outperforming real carangiform fish in terms of average maximum velocity (measured in body lengths/ second) and endurance, the duration that top speed is maintained. A new fabrication technique and mechanical drive system were developed, effectively transmitting large forces at high(More)
—This paper presents a millimeter scale robotic fish, namely iSplash-MICRO, able to accurately generate the posterior undulatory pattern of the carangiform swimming mode, at intensively high frequencies. Furthermore an investigation into anterior stabilization was made in an attempt to reduce the large kinematic errors and optimize forces around the center(More)
