Formation swimming of robotic fish

Description

In this project, we utilize the home-made robotic fish testbed to develop distributed control algorithms to coordinate the swimming of a group of robotic fish. We utilize the existing results on collective hydrodynamics caused by the fish groups and try to come up with energy-efficient control strategies. Such algorithms on the one hand can be useful for biologists to understand real fish behavior and on the other hand provide new inspiration for the design of new locomotion for underwater robots.
