Project Overview: RoboFish 3.1 - Navigation

The Robofish Project is biomimetic robotic fish platform originating from the laboratory of Dr. Lamkin-Kennard. This robot utilizes soft-pneumatic muscles, called Mckibben Muscles, to generate force required to swim. The Robofish conceived by Dr. Lamkin-Kennard is designed to look, swim, and feel like a fish. This platform is intended to be used in a wide variety of applications ranging from military to research.

This project (P16229) specifically seeks to build upon the work of previous teams to build an improved Robofish with navigational autonomy. The resulting robot will be able to navigate an obstacle course without the need for human control.
