Soft Robotic Fish Project at The Distributed Robotics Laboratory- Fall 2016

We are offering two UROP positions this fall in the field of soft robotics. The project is about the integration and testing of a novel drive and buoyancy mechanism for a soft robotic fish. The project encompasses PCB design, microcontroller programming, vision-based control and testing tasks. The controllers are developed within the Robot Operating System (ROS) framework on a Raspberry Pi and also directly on an mbed microcontroller. Testing is done both in tanks and in the MIT swimming pools.
