Boston Engineering Brings Robotic Tuna to Life with PTC Solutions

Robotic Tuna

While it’s true that the mechanical engineering field is full of talented designers, more often than not, nature trumps our best efforts. Consider the tuna fish. A tuna can cruise at about 60 mph, turn 180°, and then accelerate to about 22 mph in less than two lengths of its own body. Leveraging Nature’s Designs […]
