Abstract

Fish type robots using artificial muscles for their motion mechanisms have been developed in the author's laboratory. The robots developed until now are prototypes to confirm the effectiveness of the motion mechanism and have no autonomous motion control system. To develop an optimal motion control system for the robot, the authors focus on the swimming mechanism of fish from the aspect of fluid dynamics and report the numerical simulation results of flow fields around the swimming body by finite-element method.
