Soft robotic fin


The development of a Soft Robotic Fin (SRF) used soft mechanism actuator based on Black Ghost Knifefish (BGKF) locomotion. Two chambers pneumatic soft actuator is selected as fin rays because of its advantage in two ways bending motion with high flexibility. It was initially simulated in finite element software and then fabricated in lab. SRF has a great potential to be used in marine engineering technology as alterative propulsion system for marine transportation in the future.
