Tissue Engineered Fish Skin

Lead Pi: Michael Triantafyllou · 3/1999 - 2/2001

Project Personnel: Robert Langer

Project number: 1999-RB-47

This study presents the development of a biosynthetic fish skin to be used on aquatic robots that can emulate fish. Smoothness of the external surface is desired in improving high propulsive efficiency and maneuvering agility of autonomous underwater vehicles such as the RoboTuna.
