Autonomous robots have been around for quite some time, but it is generally hard for mechanical robots to mimic the movement of animals so closely. Many researches and experiments has been conducted to study animal’s movement and behavior which exceed normal human capabilities such as cheetah running at the speed over 100km/hr. Scientist tries to replicate the exact same movement as the animal in hope of achieving the same result. Researches, progress and results of this final year project will be documented in this report by the author. This project aims to explore building autonomous fish robot which follows closely to the actual fish using simple hardware with the main microcontroller being the Arduino UNO. The author will also explore into the possibility of wireless connection underwater, buoyancy of objects and movement in water. Hardware implementations will be discussed in chapter 3 onwards. Additionally, feature such as capturing images while underwater is propose as an additional feature that could improve the purpose of having an autonomous robot which reside underwater. Future enhancements will be discussed in chapter 6.
