Abstract

An articulated body can propel and steer itself in a perfect fluid by changing its shape only. Our strategy for motion planning for the submerged body is based on finding the optimal shape changes that produce a desired net locomotion; that is, motion planning is formulated as a nonlinear optimization problem.
