In this paper, we solve the motion planning problem for a class of underactuated multibodied planar mechanical systems. These systems interact with the environment via viscous frictional forces. The motion planning problem is solved by specifying the location of friction pads on the robot as well as by specifying the input of the actuated degrees of freedom. Moreover, through the proposed novel motion planning analysis, we identify the simplest planar swimming robot, the two-link swimmer.
