Tartaruga Robot: Naro-Nautical Robot
naro - tartaruga shall provide first direct measurements on energy consumption for a flapping fin mechanism in robotics. A specialty hereby is the fully 3D mechanism. All actuators, three for each fin, are in the same, waterproof body but they all still actuate the fin axle independently. Common systems use serial actuation principles where one motor drives a box with another motor which again drives the fin.
