Comparison of animal swimming performance with convenetional AUVs and BAUVs demonstrates that natural systems still have swimming capabilities beyond the current state of AUV technology.
Modular soft pneumatic actuator system design for compliance matching
This thesis work approaches the investigation of compliance matching of hardware systems to their applications, by providing methods to achieve mechanical attributes complimentary to their environment and end-use, which leverage and demonstrate three key features: Intrinsic compliance, passive elastic and flexible component material properties.
RoboScallop: A Bivalve Inspired Swimming Robot
Leveraging this locomotion principle may provide unique benefits over other existing underwater propulsion techniques, including robustness, scalability, resistance to entanglement, and possible implicit water treatment capabilities, to drive the further development of a new class of self-contained, hybrid-stiffness underwater robots.
Naval robots and rescue
Abstract The development of unmanned systems (UMS) for naval combat poses a profound challenge to existing conventions regarding the treatment of the shipwrecked and wounded in war at sea. Article 18
