Assembly of nanodevices with carbon nanotubes through nanorobotic manipulations
Properties and potential applications of carbon nanotubes are summarized by emphasizing the aspects of nanoelectronics and nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS). The main technologies for the assemblyExpand
Micro manipulation based on micro physics-strategy based on attractive force reduction and stress measurement
This paper proposes a handling strategy for micro objects based on micro physics. Expand
Two differential flows in a bioreactor promoted platelet generation from human pluripotent stem cell-derived megakaryocytes.
Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology enables us to investigate various potential iPSC-based therapies. Although the safety of iPSC derivation has not been completely validated, anucleateExpand
Structure optimization of fuzzy neural network by genetic algorithm
Abstract This paper presents an auto-tuning method of fuzzy inference using genetic algorithm and delta rule. Fuzzy inference is applied to various problems. However, the determination of membershipExpand
Micro mechatronics and micro actuators
Micro mechatronics is the synergetic integration of both mechanical and electronic systems based on scaling effects in the micro world. A micro mechatronics system is expected to be the key componentExpand
New catheter driving method using linear stepping mechanism for intravascular neurosurgery
In this paper, we describe the development of a new slave device in the master-slave system and construct the new remote control system of catheter operation with safety. Expand
Adhesion forces reduction for micro manipulation based on micro physics
Micro manipulation is required for assembling and maintenance of micro machines and their parts. As the handling objects are miniaturized, interactive forces such as van der Waals force, surfaceExpand
Turbulence Activates Platelet Biogenesis to Enable Clinical Scale Ex Vivo Production
The ex vivo generation of platelets from human-induced pluripotent cells (hiPSCs) is expected to compensate donor-dependent transfusion systems. However, manufacturing the clinically required numberExpand
Micro catheter system with active guide wire
We propose a new prototype model of micro-catheter with active guide wire that has two bending degrees of freedom that is applicable to intracavity operations. Expand
Steering mechanism of underwater micro mobile robot
This paper deals with a micro mobile robot in water utilizing a PZT(Pb(Zr,Ti)O/sub 3/) as an actuator which has a new steering mechanism. Expand
