Abstract

<p>The objective of this study was to construct an experimental system which can measure propulsive force during swimming motion by using a humanoid robot, SWUMANOID. First, a device to fix a robot to a circulating water tank was made. Using this device, the robot was fixed to a circulating water tank and the propulsive force was measured by a force sensor. The swimming motion of the robot was filmed simultaneously. In the crawl stroke, two distinct peaks in the time history of the propulsive force were found when the left and right arms generated the propulsive force. In the breaststroke, a small peak of the propulsive force which was generated by the arms and a large peak which was generated by the legs were found. In the butterfly stroke, two peaks of similar size which were generated by the arms and legs respectively were found. Since these results were consistent with the ones in previous researches, the validity of the experimental system was confirmed.</p>
