This paper describes the overall architecture f o r complez mo t ion learning of practical robotic systems and then proposes a method to eztend a reinforcement learning to the domain of continuous robot control problem in order to apply i t f o r behavior learning of practical robotic systems. T o represent continuous control variables, C M A C is employed(More)
BACKGROUND The effectiveness of percutaneous vertebroplasty for osteoporotic vertebral pseudarthrosis with delayed-onset paraplegia has not been reported. We performed vertebroplasty for such patients and tried to investigate the effectiveness of this surgery. METHODS We studied 11 patients (2001-2007) treated with percutaneous vertebroplasty for(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this paper was to evaluate the efficacies and safety of transurethral prostate enucleation by bipolar system (TUEB) for the patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). METHODS We prospectively evaluated clinical outcomes of TUEB in 55 patients with BPH from July 2005 to January 2011. Mean ages of the patients were 69.2 years.(More)

In this paper, we propose a deformable model-driven method to obtain the 3D information necessary for handling clothes by manipulators from observation with stereo cameras. The task considered in this paper is to hold up a target part of clothes (e.g. one shoulder of a pullover) by the second manipulator, when the clothes are held in the air at any point by(More)
This paper deals with a new type of dynamically moving mobile robot modeling a gibbon, namely a long-armed ape, that moves branch t o branch swinging its body like a pendulum. I t does not use much force to move by making use of gravity to swing. The manner of moving like a gibbon is called brachiation. In this paper we present the method to control the(More)
