Robot fish for theory validation
This biomimetic robot was developed by Kinea Design for the purpose of validating a computational fluid dynamics model for the knifefish. Mechadept provided concept development for two different actuation approaches and created the mechanical design of the final device.
The robot is compact, about the size of a human forearm. It has 30 independent fin spines, each controlled by it's own motor and electronics.
