Underwater swimming robot responds with feedback from soft 'lateral line'


A team of scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) in Germany, from Seoul National University in Korea and from the Harvard University in the US, successfully developed a predictive model and closed-loop controller of a soft robotic fish, designed to actively adjust its undulation amplitude to changing flow conditions and other external disturbances. Their work “Modeling and Control of a Soft Robotic Fish with Integrated Soft Sensing” was published in Wiley’s Advanced Intelligent Systems journal, in a special issue on “Energy Storage and Delivery in Robotic Systems.”
