The development of a robotic fish based on a polymer actuator is reported. The fish used a PPy based actuator to generate swimming motions. Extensive experiments were conducted to characterize the behavior of PPy films. Actuators based on the shape of a caudal fin were designed. The robot was powered by a lithium coin battery and was completely self-contained. Waterproof packaging was designed to protect the electronics inside. This is the first time such a project has been undertaken in the world. As a proof-of-concept, this project successfully shows a working prototype with 10-12 hours lifetime with an average speed of 1-2mm/s. It is concluded that the weak actuation of PPy material was the major limitation of the prototype.

The project based on cooperation between PERC and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Student groups have to create a prototype which presented as robotic fish. The construction of the device in electronic and software been conducted by the students. The actuation design and properties made by Dr. Rudolf Kiefer. The results of the investigation and of the prototype presentation been presented on ACRA (Australasian Conference on Robotics and Automation).l

Based on the outcome between the cooperation of PERC (Polymer electronic research center) and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering the results of PPy-Trilayer that can actuate in frequencies up to 1 Hz, new modeling for pump systems been made and published in SPIE proceedings.
