BPN899: Design of a MEMS Swimming Robot


Microrobots produced from MEMS-level manufacturing have the potential to explore areas that are otherwise difficult to reach. This project seeks do develop a swimming robot that can navigate submerged environments with speeds comparable to biological specimens of similar size. Biomimetic design methods are considered for the method of locomotion.
