Part 1: project profile

Project name

ZOIDBERG - An autonomous bio-inspired robotic fish

Project short description

ZOIDBERG is a project about an autonomous bio-inspired RoboFish. The project's aim is to realize a bio-inspired fish actuated by a particular electroactive polymer (EAP) , ICPF (Ionic Conducting Polymer Film). The robot will be able to swim in autonomous way in response to different behaviours.

Laboratory work and risk analysis

Laboratory work for this project will be mainly performed at AIRLab/Lambrate. It will include significant amounts of mechanical work as well as of electrical and electronic activity. Potentially risky activities are the following:

  • Use of mechanical tools. Standard safety measures described in Safety norms will be followed.
  • Use of soldering iron. Standard safety measures described in Safety norms will be followed.
  • Use of high-voltage circuits. Special gloves and a current limiter will be used.
  • Robot testing. Standard safety measures described in Safety norms will be followed.
