A Hybrid Class Underwater Vehicle : Bioinspired Propulsion , Embedded System , and Acoustic Communication and Localization System


Inspired by the natural locomotion of jellyfish and squid, a series of compact thrusters series is developed for propulsion and maneuvering of underwater vehicles. These thrusters successively ingest and expel jets of water in a controlledmanner at high frequencies to generate propulsive forces. The parameters controlling the performance of the thrusters… (More)
