In the fields of medicine and biology, it is essential to realize fine manipulation. Therefore, micromanipulation techniques and micromanipulators such as microgrippers and optical tweezers have been developed. We have developed a two-fingered microhand which is using the parallel mechanism to realize precise and stable micromanipulation. However, the(More)
An on-chip deformability checker is proposed to improve the velocity–deformation correlation for red blood cell (RBC) evaluation. RBC deformability has been found related to human diseases, and can be evaluated based on RBC velocity through a microfluidic constriction as in conventional approaches. The correlation between transit velocity and amount of(More)
This paper presents an active release method of microobject for the improvement of the position accuracy after releasing by using 3D high speed motions of an end effector. In the micro manipulation, the release task is the challenge work due to adhesion forces. To overcome the adhesion force and to place microobject accurately on the desired location, in(More)
Recently, manipulation and observation of the cells are actively conducted in order to analyze the biological phenomena. Since the micro hand is usually fixed to the work environment, grasping target point of the cell on the opposite side of the micro hand by using a micro hand is limited by narrow workspace. If we move the micro hand in vertical direction(More)
The paper describes a method of fault-tolerant adaptive gait generation based on CPG controller with interlimb coordination for multi-limbed working robot. Multi-limbed robot is expected to work in dangerous, complicated narrow spaces, where human workers cannot reach. However, if one of the limbs is broken in the dangerous/narrow working space, human(More)
