Title (EN) WAVE POWER
(FR) VEHICULE A ENERGIE HOULOMOTRICE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A wave-powered water vehicle includes a surface float, a submerged swimmer, and a tether which connects the float and the swimmer, so that the swimmer moves up and down as a result of wave motion. The swimmer includes one or more fins which interact with the water as the swimmer moves up and down, and generate forces which propel the vehicle forward. The vehicle, which need not be manned, can carry communication and control equipment so that it can follow a course directed by signals sent to it, and so that it can record or transmit data from sensors on the vehicle.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un véhicule aquatique à énergie houlomotrice comprenant un flotteur de surface, un nageur immergé et un câble d’attache qui relie le flotteur et le nageur, afin que le nageur monte et descende suivant le mouvement des vagues. Le nageur comporte une ou plusieurs ailettes en interaction avec l’eau lorsque le nageur monte et descend, qui génèrent des forces propulsant le véhicule en avant. Le véhicule, qui n’a pas besoin d’être habité, peut transporter du matériel de communication et de commande afin de pouvoir suivre une route indiquée par des signaux qu’il reçoit, et afin de pouvoir enregistrer ou émettre des données à partir de capteurs sur le véhicule.
