Abstract

The authors are involved in developing small fish type robots using Shape-Memory Alloy (SMA) type artificial muscle as caudal fin actuators. However, it was found to be difficult to install a large capacity battery and the kinds of sensors needed for practical underwater investigation because their small body restricted the payload. Therefore the authors attempted to enlarge the fish type robot. In this paper, the author introduce the control method of actuator using artificial muscle called Segmented Binary Control and developed the actuator unit for the larger fish type robot. The actuator unit is examined concerning the performance. Then the author attempted to develop large sized fish type robot.
