Analysis, Design and Implementation of a Bio-inspired Passive Tail for Amphibious Robots

The Passive Tail and Test Setup


The objective of the project is to develop an appropriate chordwise stiffness distribution along a bio-inspired tail for amphibious robot systems which maximizes the propulsion generated under a combined movement of both passive heaving and pitching. In addition, a passive part of the tail test setup is built on the basis of a previous work of a pool flow system for ease of further tests and replications of aquatic locomotion in biorobotic applications.
