A multi-body approach for 6DOF modeling of Biomimetic Autonomous Underwater Vehicles with simulation and experimental results


We propose a six degree-of-freedom multi-body approach for modeling and simulation of Biologically-inspired (or Biomimetic) Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (BAUVs), i.e., artificial fish. The proposed approach is based on considering the BAUV as comprised of multiple rigid bodies interlinked through joints; the external force and torque on each rigid body in… (More)
