A swimming bot

hi people,

this is my first thread.

i have an idea for an water bot.
this is for a competition.

the idea is kinda ingenious ( i think )
and this is my first venture to do something[😛]

so i need help from those who have already done stuff like this.

can anyone help out ?

We would all love to help. Why don't you post your initial ideas and diagrams to tell us what you are trying to achieve. We all can build on your ideas.

oops guys..
i missed out posting my idea..
sorry for the mistake.

well my idea is quite simple.
use motors to produce a human type of swimming action, using crank connecting rod mechanism.

i sure it would work.
its just that im not sure about the procedure to follow in order to build my robot.

A design is very important. A good design considering all forces involved will make the bot float, otherwise it will sink.

well design is ok..
but im asking you if the bot would move in the swimming action if i use the above said mechanism.?

thats my doubt.
whether the swimming action would occur or not if i used the mechanism
