Biomimetic underwater robots have been paid more and more attention because of high efficiency, high maneuverability and low-noise. The undulating ribbon-fins used by rajiformes and gymnotiformes show better maneuverability than those of other fishes in turbulent water. So the undulating ribbon-fin propulsion is analyzed for biomimetic underwater robot design and optimization in the paper. The geometric model of the ribbon-fin is set up in Cartesian space. The undulating motion of the ribbon… CONTINUE READING
