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.
