This paper proposed a new method of designing a flexible biomimetic fish propelled by oscillating flexible pectoral fins. The molding soft body is adopted in the robotic fish. Pneumatic artificial muscles are utilized as driving sources and two ribs with distributed flexibility as main parts of the propulsive mechanism. The leading edge locomotion profile of the flexible pectoral fin in air is studied experimentally, and the flapping locomotion in water is observed too. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed method is illustrated by the experiment. It shows that the robotic fish can realize self-driven, and it can swim at a speed of 0.18 m/s~0.20 m/s after optimization.
