Abstract: The ability to automatically generate swimming gaits for an aquatic creature has applications to a number of areas including film animation, locomotion of creatures in video games, biological investigations, and more. This talk will survey a general method for automatic generation of realistic swimming gaits for a given aquatic creature and discuss potential improvements to the method. This method uses an evolution strategy known as Covariance Matrix Adaptation in order to optimize the swimming gaits of a creature for a desired trait such as locomotion. Physically-based simulation of an aquatic environment poses significant challenges for the automatic generation of realistic swimming gaits.
