The goal of this project was to improve UAV efficiency and safety through use of biomimetic design. This was achieved through the application of a hydraulically actuated soft robotic fin. Drawing inspiration from the manta ray, a custom actuator was developed to achieve a feasible, lifelike locomotion method.
I have developed a mobile robot with sensors and controls that can be manipulated via a web browser from multiple locations simultaneously. An on board webcam with Pan/tilt provides the teams with live video and audio feedback.
