SMA CONTROL FOR BIO-MIMETIC FISH LOCOMOTION

Claudio Rossi, Antonio Barrientos, William Coral Cuellar

Abstract

In this paper, we describe our current work on bio-inspired locomotion systems using smart materials. The aim of this work is to investigate alternative actuation mechanisms based on smart materials, exploring the possibility of building motor-less and gear-less robots. A swimming underwater robot is being developed whose movements are generated using such materials, concretely Shape Memory Alloys. This paper focuses on the actuators control in order to obtain a a sufficiently fast and accurate positioning.
