Numerical and experimental investigation of a biomimetic robotic jellyfish actuated by Ionic Polymer-Metal Composite
A biomimetic jellyfish robot is explored. The robot will be actuated by Ionic Polymer-Metal Composites arranged in a silicone dome. Computational Analysis is used to optimize thrust production by the jellyfish robot. Preliminary experiments will be conducted to analyze the deformation, thrust, displacement, and velocity. The two analyses will be compared to further optimize the design. © 2016 IEEE.
