Biomimetic Optimal Force Generation for Underwater Manipulators

PI: Michael Triantafyllou, MIT Sea Grant

Project Number:2008-R/RCM-24

Start Date:2008-02-01End Date:2010-01-31

Proposal Summary

In this project, researchers are developing biomimimetic fin control procedures and mechanisms to produce the high-amplitude counter-balancing forces needed in AUVs equipped with force manipulators for undersea intervention. This research is expected to be used for AUVs involved in underwater observatories and ultra-deep water oil and gas extraction systems for the offshore industry.
