P16029: Robofish 3.2 - Object Retrieval

Project Summary Project Information

The goal of this project is to create an underwater robot that can detect a falling object, descend down and intercept the object before it hits the bottom of the environment, while returning to a "home" location. The fish will achieve the capabilities required by utilizing McKibben muscles for horizontal propulsion. In addition, the fish will be able to detect the object and make a optimal decision on how to intercept the object before it hits the bottom of the environment. There have been two phases, P14029 and P15029, that have incorporated buoyancy, RC and autonomous control. Our team will utilize what has already been created, and design a new Robotic fish utilizing a new pump system and tail. Our team will be collaborating our efforts with P16229.
