Cow-nosed rays can perform diversified swimming modes including linear cruise, pitching, yawing, and gliding. This paper focuses on the realization of these swimming modes. Furthermore, the role of tail fins are taken into account. The phase oscillators with controlled amplitudes have been adopted to build a new central pattern generator (CPG) network that… CONTINUE READING
