Biomimetic locomotion is of interest in applications where good cruising speeds, high maneuverability and stealth are needed. Current Biomimetic devices that use traditional discrete-stiff mechanisms have severe limitations because of their complexity. The proposed approach exploits the natural dynamics of a flexible structure in order to achieve the body motions needed to implement Biomimetic swimming performance.
