We have developed a net-structure proximity sensor that detects the azimuth and elevation to a nearby object. This information can be used by robots to avoid obstacles or to respond to human behavior. We propose detection principles where the azimuth is detected by arranging two one-dimensional net-structure proximity sensors along orthogonal axes, and the(More)
This paper presents a guidance robot for the visually impaired along with generation of velocity reference signals. The guidance robot has an interface grip with a force sensor on the top. The robot can be operated intuitively through the interface grip, and at the same time, the position and the behavior of the robot can be provided to the user. An(More)
For femoral fracture reduction, we have developed a surgical robotic system. Indirect traction is employed in our system. Indirect traction in fracture reduction is a generally used surgical method for preventing complications such as bone splits caused by high stress on bones. For traction, a patientpsilas foot is gripped by a jig and pulled to the distal(More)
