... are difficult to achieve, especially in high-energy coastal zones. Maneuverability and control could be improved by implementing real-time sensing of the hydrodynamic forces acting on a BAUV’s compliant body. In this study, we predict the hydrodynamic forces generated by a soft-robotic propulsor using Physical...

... such as shape memory alloys can be more advantageous for the actuation of soft robotic underwater grippers because there is less need for complex electronic systems. Therefore, this project explores the use of smart materials for the actuation of a soft robotic underwater gripper. With this aim, three different...
