  • Biorobots that harness the power generated by living muscle cells have recently gained interest as an alternative to traditional mechanical robots. However, robust and reliable operation of these biorobots still remains a challenge. Toward this end, we developed a self-stabilizing swimming biorobot that can maintain its submersion depth, pitch, and roll without external intervention. The biorobot developed in this study utilized a fin-based propulsion mechanism. It consisted of a base made from… CONTINUE READING
