Today I read a paper titled “The eel-like robot”
The abstract is:
The aim of this project is to design, study and build an “eel-like robot” prototype able to swim in three dimensions.
The study is based on the analysis of eel swimming and results in the realization of a prototype with 12 vertebrae, a skin and a head with two fins.
To reach these objectives, a multidisciplinary group of teams and laboratories has been formed in the framework of two French projects.
