In this paper, a visual and haptic human-machine interface is proposed for teleoperated nano scale object interaction and manipulation. Design specifications for a bilateral scaled teleoperation system with slave and master robots, sensors, actuators, and control are discussed. Phantom haptic device is utilized as the master manipulator, and a(More)
We have developed a small scale four-layered neural network (NN) model for simple character recognition, which can recognize the patterns transformed by affine conversion. In this study 24 patterns are presented as input patterns. An input pattern is divided into 64 local patterns and connected with the 1st hidden layer. After the training, we investigated(More)
A dexterous tele-micromanipulation systems using haptic interfaces have been developed for the application in assembling electrical / optical parts for recent electrical devices, micro-machine, etc. This paper describes the development of visual operation support systems for tele-micromanipulation systems. Because of its better manipulation positioning(More)
In recent years, various physiological functions of salmon milt extract, which consists of nucleic acid and nucleoprotein, have been reported. The objective of this study is to analyze the physiological function and its mechanism of salmon milt extract (NG) on nematodes (C. elegans). The wild type nematode N2 strain was bred on the plate containing of NG(More)
Multiferroic materials show simultaneous ferroelectric and magnetic ordering, exhibit unusual physical properties — and in turn promise new device applications — as a result of the coupling between their dual order parameters. Room-temperature multiferroics are a promising route to design magnetic/electric memories. Over the past decade, there has been a(More)
