In this paper, we present a method of locomotion control for underwater vehicles that are propelled by a periodic deformation of the vehicle body, which is similar to the way a fish moves. We have developed control laws employing ldquoextremum seekingrdquo for two different ldquofishrdquo models. The first model consists of three rigid body links and relies on a 2-degree-of-freedom (DOF) movement that propels the fish without relying on vortices. The second fish model uses a Joukowski airfoil that has only 1 DOF in its movement and, thus, relies on vortex shedding for propulsion. We achieve model-free and position-free ldquosource seeking,rdquo and, if position is available, navigation along a predetermined path.
