Designing an Underwater Eel-like Robot and Developing Anguilliform Locomotion

  title={Designing an Underwater Eel-like Robot and Developing Anguilliform Locomotion},
  author={Tamara A. Knutsen},
In this report, I investigate the design and development of an eellike amphibious robot. After reviewing research on dynamic mobile robots and control and motion planning for biomimetic robot systems, I analyzed the prototype created by Kenneth McIsaac and Jim Ostrowski and redesigned its key mechanical, electrical and communication components. The significant changes I implemented affected the number of links of the robot, its waterproof characteristics and the communication design (both… CONTINUE READING
