Abstract

<p>Bio-logging method obtains information by a data logger attached to the body of animals for ecological survey. It has great potential to reveal various mysteries of animals. Some researchers of sperm whales try to get the video data of preying sperm whales through the bio-logging, but no one has succeeded it. They can conventionally put a data logger only on the back of sperm whale. It is difficult to get video data around the sperm whale's mouth because of darkness of deep sea. To tackle this problem, we have introduced a "Whale Rover" which is able to move along the surface of sperm whale, and provide mobility for the data logger. Until now, we developed several prototypes of whale rover. In this paper, we introduce a new prototype which is expected to adopt curved surface.</p>
