    • Bio-inspired robotic fish propelled by multiple artificial fins 

      Hou, Piqi; Ye, Zhihang; Chen, Zheng (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2017)
      With advances in actuation and sensing, smart materials has drawn a growing attention from researchers in under water robotic fish. In this paper, a compact, noiseless, and untethered biomimetic robotic fish propelled by ...
    • Collision avoidance by IPMC actuated robotic fish using the Collision Cone Approach 

      Sunkara, Vishwamithra Reddy; Ye, Zhihang; Chakravarthy, Animesh; Chen, Zheng (IEEE, 2016)
      This paper addresses the problem of collision avoidance by robotic fish that have one caudal and two pectoral fins, all driven by Ionic Polymer-Metal Composite (IPMC) actuators, which are often called artificial muscles. ...
    • Modeling of robotic fish propelled by a servo/IPMC hybrid tail 

      Chen, Zheng; Hou, Piqi; Ye, Zhihang (IEEE, 2018-10)
      This paper presents modeling of robotic fish propelled by a hybrid tail with Servo and IPMC actuated two joints. The first joint is driven by a servo motor, which generates flapping motion for main propulsion. The second ...
    • Robotic fish propelled by a servo motor and ionic polymer-metal composite hybrid tail 

      Chen, Zheng; Hou, Piqi; Ye, Zhihang (ASME, 2019-03-25)
      In this paper, a new robotic fish propelled by a hybrid tail, which is actuated by two active joints, is developed. The first joint is driven by a servo motor, which generates flapping motions for main propulsion. The ...
