Article
Recently, 3D printers using continuous carbon fiber as a material have attracted considerable attention from researchers due to its high mechanical properties and the potential to reproduce complex shapes. Although the main advantage of 3D printing is that complex shapes can be produced through a simple process, very few studies have evaluated samp...
Article
Gait rehabilitation training under robotic-assisted partial Body Weight Support (BWS) is a promising technique that helps patients who suffer from a traumatic or congenital brain injury like stroke or cerebral palsy to become more independent in daily life activities. In recent years, robotic BWS systems have been widely studied, where the BWS is p...
Article
In recent years, the need of automation in the garment manufacturing has increased, due to labor shortage and an increased demand. In garment manufacturing the handling and manipulation of the fabric is estimated as the 80 percent of the total production line time. Therefore, there is a large research interest in designing grippers for handling fab...
Article
In the past, we have proposed a one-stroke path generation algorithm for 3D printing using a continuous fiber composite material. However, with this method, we cannot control the output path by setting any priorities to the proposed algorithm. In this paper, the path is controlled by prioritizing the edges of the undirected graph used in the algori...
Article
We propose a motion control method for passive towed robots focusing on turning. In the conventional method, the formation is formed by controlling the tether angle to the target value. This method assumes that the tension is maintained and does not take into account the factor of tension loss during a turn. It is considered that the target tether...
Article
In this paper, we present an inspection robot specialized for street lamps. Initially, we propose the concept of a climbing robot using wheels with magnets to inspect street lamps. We confirmed that the robot was able to climb up and down smoothly. The experimental results show that the robot has potential for practical use in the future. Next, we...
Article
In this study, we describe a haptic feedback system using wireless vibration units commercially available, together with a tool for automatic generation of control software for these devices based on the concept of tactons. The amplitude modulation is controlled by changing the drive time of the motor in the device. We use the Reconfigurable Vibrot...
Article
In this study, we propose a wide area exploration system that combines wire towing system and passive mobile robots. Passive mobile robots loaded with exploration sensors are driven by a pulling force from wire towing system and can move to desired location by steering control. In this paper, we expand the search range by increasing the number the...
Article
In this paper, we present a golf putting training system using vibrotactile cues and mixed reality technology. A model of ideal putter swing was determined to derive putter head path during an ideal swing. A head mounted display type mixed reality device was used to show virtual objects on a real world. For example, a hologram of putting direction...
Article
In this paper, we present a path planning algorithm for the fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printer which can print with continuous fiber. The proposed algorithm enables us to create one stroke path which could print only by one continuous fiber. In the proposed method, we produce Eulerian graphs by converting print patterns and use conditional...
Article
In this paper, we present a method to quickly guide a person’s motion in the context of sports coaching using vibrotactile stimuli. Users wear a ring-shaped device on the right ankle and the vibrotactile stimulus indicates where users should move. We use a tactile illusion called Phantom Tactile Sensation to produce localized vibrations at any poin...
Article
In this study, we propose a wide area exploration system that combines multiple winch units and passive mobile robots. Passive mobile robots loaded with exploration sensors are driven by a pulling force from the winch unitts and can steer by controlling brakes attached to their wheels. By adjusting the wire length, the passive mobile robot is pulle...

Self-tracking aims to increase awareness, decrease undesired behaviors, and ultimately lead towards a healthier lifestyle. However, inappropriate communication of self-tracking results might cause the opposite effect. Subtle self-tracking feedback is an alternative that can be provided with the aid of an artificial agent representing the self. Henc...
Article
In this study, we propose a wide area exploration system that consists on passive wheeled robots equipped with exploration sensors that are pulled from a high position with wires fed out from two winches. The robots are driven by the pulling force from the winches and they are able to steer by controlling brakes attached to their wheels. By adjusti...

Abstract This paper proposes a novel, simple and high-efficient submerged structural stabilization system for a self-stabilizing buoy that provides a stable platform for oceanographic and meteorological sensors. The proposed stabilization system is a Seesaw-like Tuned Mass Damper (STMD) combined with a foil and is designed in a way to harvest the a...
Article
Robotic systems play a very important role in exploration, allowing us to reach places that would otherwise be unsafe or unreachable to humans, such as volcanic areas, disaster sites or unknown areas in other planets. As the area to be explored increases, so does the time it takes for robots to explore it. One approach to reduce the required time i...
Article
In recent years, multiple navigation systems using vibrotactile feedback have been studied, due to their ability to convey information while keeping free the visual and auditory channels, besides eliciting rapid responses from users. In the current stage, most navigation systems with vibrotactile feedback in the literature focus on guiding users ar...
Article
In this paper, we present a paradigm to improve the followability on a path-following task for the wrist by practicing repeatedly using vibrotactile cues. Vibrotactile cues were provided as a direction to modify the wrist’s path when the wrist’s position deviates from the desired path. The experiment was conducted to test the learning effect of the...
Article
Haptic feedback systems using vibrotactile stimulus to support human motion have been widely researched, mainly due to the low price and reduced size of vibration motors, which allow the trainees to actively move while using them. Most existing vibrotactile feedback systems focus on providing information about the human's joint angles, making it ne...
Article
We propose a novel method for motion guidance by creating a motion direction by using multiple vibration stimulations. In order to create the motion direction, we utilize a vibratactile illusion called Phantom Sensation. In this method, moving vibration stimulation on the user's skin, which is generated by controlled the position of Phantom Sensati...
Article
In this paper, we present a novel motion guidance method for the human's limbs. In particular, we achieve the motion guidance for the arm by providing single-point vibrotactile feedback in the wrist. In the proposed method, we attempt to produce vibrotactile stimulation in any direction perpendicular to the wrist using a vibrotactile illusion calle...
Article
Vibrotactile feedback has long been used to improve the human motor learning process through information transfer. However, in most of the approaches described in the literature, only the joint angles of the limb are guided. To guide motions that involve multiple degrees of freedom (DOFs), the user needs to interpret multiple simultaneous vibrotact...
Article
We propose a method for motion guidance by creating a motion direction by utilizing a vibration haptic device attached to user wrist. In order to create the motion direction, we come up with a new method called Direction Sensation. This method utilizes two vibrotactile illusions and they generate a feeling similar to putting our arms in the flow of...
