Selle teema eesmärgiks on töötada välja uus paradigma allveerobotite ehitamiseks, nimelt sellised robotid, mis - kasutavad uut tüüpi sensoreid selleks et tunda ja analüüsida veevoolu - kasutavad uut tüüpi järeleandlikke täitureid, mis suudavad vähendada sõiduki energiatarvet ning salvestada energiat - kasutavad uut tüüpi juhtimist, mis võimaldab robotitel voolu suhtes navigeerida Kasutame bioloogiast inspireeritud lahendusi, eelkõige -analoogiat kala küljejoone ja robotite veevoolu tajumise vahel - analoogiat bioloogiliste liikumismeetodite ja järeleandlike muudetava jäikusega uimetäiturite vahel Teiseks kasutame bioloogiast inpireeritud roboteid et testida hüpoteese bioloogias, eelkõige: - kasutame kunstlikku kala küljejoont et aru saada jõgede hüdrodünaamikast ja interpreteerida siirdekalade käitumist - kasutame kalaroboteid et uurida kalaparvede dünaamikat ning kalade tajusid.
We introduce a new paradigm into the field of underwater robotics, namely robots that use new types of - sensing to interpret flow information - soft embodiment and flexible actuators that can reduce energy consumption and harvest energy from flow - control algorithms that help the vehicle navigate with respect to flow The method of this research topic is mainly biomimetics: using and analogy to biological systems to solve problems in engineering. Mostly, it is based on the analogy between: - fish lateral line sensing and robotic sensors for flow sensing - biological propulsors (fins and flippers) and flexible man-made hydrofoils. The secondary approach is reverse biomimetics: Namely we use: -artificial lateral line sensors to understand river hydrodynamics and migrating fish behaviour in rivers - fish robots to understand fish school dynamics and kin recognition The proposal advances those technologies from laboratory conditions (TRL4) to field tests in operational environments (TRL7).
