GhostSwimmer, a Biomimetic Robotic Fish

The Boston Engineering SCOPE project is part of a Phase II Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant from the Navy that is held jointly by Olin College and Boston Engineering. This year's efforts are a continuation of the 2008 - 2009 SCOPE project supporting Boston Engineering in the development of the GhostSwimmer, an autonomous biomimetic underwater robot modeled after a blue fin tuna. The Olin team’s responsibility is to aid in the development of modular sensor arrays, control and behavior algorithms, actuator selection and testing, and simulations to be integrated with Boston Engineering's robot platform.
