AbstractIn this chapter, a class of wire-driven robot fish is presented. It comprises of a streamlined body and a flapping tail, which is designed based on the biomimetic wire-driven mechanism (BWDM). The BWDM mimics not only the fish body skeletal structure but also the muscle arrangement. As a result, the wire-driven robot fish can well replicate various fish flapping motion with minimum number of actuators and thus, has simple structure and excellent propulsion efficiency. Three wire-driven robot fish are presented. The first one is driven by one motor and swims in oscillatory form; the second one is driven by two motors and swims in undulatory form; and the third one can mimic both shark swim and dolphin swim.
